Sidney Crosby Body Slams Hurricanes’ Jay Harrison After Scuffle (GIF)

Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Jay Harrison pushed Sidney Crosby over the edge Tuesday night.

With the Hurricanes leading the Pittsburgh Penguins by three goals late in the third period, Harrison delivered a hit on Crosby just after the already frustrated Pens captain had released the puck.

The check flipped a switch for Crosby, who punched back at Harrison before grabbing him by the throat and slamming him to the ice with a WWE-style finishing move.

Both players were given roughing minors for their roles in the scrap, and the Hurricanes went on to win 4-1.

It was an eventful night for Crosby, who also made news by getting smacked in face by a linesman earlier in the game.
