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.
