Matt Bradley, choir boy, jumps Steve Downie

This really bothers me (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O-H1l-sOxng&feature=related).  When Carcillo fought Bradley, there were arguments that Bradley wasn't a fighter and he wasn't expecting Carcillo to jump on him that quickly.  Last night, Bradley decided to flank Downie while he was eyeing up Alexander Ovechkin, effectively getting the jump on him while Downie was engaged with another player. 

My issue is: Carcillo is seen as the villain, for fighting a guy before he dropped his gloves, but this Bradley is seen as the HERO for jumping into a 1v1 fight and surprising Downie.  Carcillo got 2 games for his behavior.  Bradley should get 5 for 3rd party and jumping another player.  But he won't.  All of that sympathy Bradley got for Carcillo dropping him is lost in my opinion.  Bradley is a goon and was expecting a fight with Carcillo the whole time.  Carcillo got the drop on him, much like Bradley got the drop on Downie
