Try to pull your gaze away from Jordie Benn’s glorious beard for a moment to watch this awesome fight.
Josh Gorges of the Buffalo Sabres lays a huge hit on Montreal Canadien Brendan Gallagher along the boards, leveling him to the ice. In response, Benn immediately locks onto Gorges and drops the gloves, sticking up for his teammate. It was a great fight, both men getting their good licks in. Don’t take our word for it though, take a look for yourself and let us know who you think won.
So much for Benn’s chances at winning the Lady Byng Trophy this season! Oh well, there is always next year. Of course, Benn did call Gorges a “great guy” after the game and he said he was just standing up for Brendan Gallagher.
