Like it or not fighting is part of hockey. Sure many in the NHL want to move the game away from it's brawling past, but sometimes tempers flare and a bit of a punch up is needed to settle things. This is especially the case when two heated rivals get together on the ice.
On Thursday night the Washington Capitals traveled north to take on the Pittsburgh Penguins continuing the hottest feud in NHL. Many Penguin fans blame the Capitals for putting Sydney Crosby out for the last year, and as a result the bad blood between the two top ranked teams always seems to boil over. Thursday's game was no exception.
Jay Beagle of the Washington Capitals found himself on the wrong end of a powerful punch that left him laid out on the ice, and the Penguin players gloating. This is not something you see everyday.
The Caps beat the Penguins 3-2 in overtime, but the win did not come without consequence.
In the third period, Jay Beagle took a penalty on Kris Letang. Penguins Arron Asham decided he wanted to dance and Beagle had no choice but to accept that invitation.
Asham is an experienced hockey fighter. Beagle is not, so you can imagine that it didn’t go very well.

Here comes another obvious debate: Washington's Jay Beagle wasn't too kind to Pittsburgh's Kris Letang... for which the refs had called a penalty. The law of hockey (these days... or is it any other day) when a nobody messes with your somebody, you have to face the consequences. Pittsburgh's Aaron Asham challenged Beagle to a fight. (Beagle didn't bother to lose...

All right everyone, we're about to discuss a hockey fight, so I need you to put on your level heads. There's going to be talk of league office discipline, and a bit about the culture of enforcers, and maybe even a mention of concussions.
