A Bizarre Night in the NHL - One-Punch Fights, Blood and Biting

You're already seen it on The Pensblog, Empty Netters and Puck Daddy, and probably other places, but it was definitely a bizarre night in the NHL.

First we'll start with Ruslan Fedotenko's one-punch fight against Colby Armstrong:

The strangest part isn't that the fight was only one punch long, or that Ruslan Fedotenko dominated a fight, but that Fedotenko apparently injured or even broke his hand on Colby's giant nose.

But it got much weirder last night...

There was another one-punch fight last night as Matt Walker absolutely decked Ed Jovanovski with a hard right hand. There's a lot of blood there. Definitely surprising. Even Walker looks shocked at the results.

And then, of course, the strangest of them all...

Former Penguins Jarko Ruutu BIT Sabres forward Andrew Peters during an scrum last night. HE BIT HIM.

Of course, the sports world has now flashed back to this:

Last night in the NHL looked like a microcosm of Mike Tyson's boxing career: quick knock downs, blood and biting.

The NHL now plans to have a hearing for Ruutu who was not penalized on the play. Since Ruutu doesn't exactly have a sparking reputation in the NHL, I expect to see some rather severe punishment laid down.

It was definitely a weird night.
