Daniel Briere, who is sneaky with his hockey stick while controlling the puck or reverting to a cheap shot, decided to get close to Paul Gaustad on a face-off. A little too close for comfort, as Gaustad threw his former teammate down to the ice and then welcomed Scott Hartnell for a friendly postseason fight.
Helmets off and after both players paused to observe their teammates roughing each other up, a mutual agreement was conferred to start punching. A clean bout through and through, as neither forward tried a dirty trick to incapacitate his opponent, but Hartnell might have bit off more than he could chew. A traditional boxing judge would have voted in favor of the Goose for his unanimous decision.
