In the National Hockey League (NHL), two opposing players will decide to fight each other. The fight may be over one player checking another player into the boards too hard or may be over someone slashing a player with a stick. In this case, Radko Gudas of the Washington Capitals and Nick Deslauriers of the Anaheim Ducks decided to drop gloves after both players obtained a penalty.
Gudas attempted to play the tough guy role by circling around Deslauriers, but once Deslauriers caught Gudas, the punches began to rain down in bunches. Fortunately, the referees broke this up. Deslauriers won this fight, but the Capitals won 3-2.
