Philadelphia Flyers forward Scott Hartnell managed to score the game's first goal in Thursday's matchup against the Toronto Maple Leafs. In doing so, he also managed to slash Toronto captain Dion Phaneuf and start a fight seconds later.
As Yahoo's Puck Daddy blog points out, this isn't the first time in recent weeks that Hartnell and Phaneuf have made news for beefing. During the All-Star Game, Hartnell assisted Canucks center Henrik Sedin on a goal while Phaneuf was on the ice and lucky for us, Hartnell was mic'd up for their exchange of words where Hartsy told Phaneuf to "suck it."
So Thursday's game between this Flyers and the Maple Leafs had some extra heat to it, and Hartnell wasted no time getting down to business with Phaneuf.
Coming out of the All-Star break, both teams are currently ranked second in their respective divisions. Philly is trailing the New York Rangers while Toronto tries to keep pace with the recently-not-so-hot Bruins.
