The Winnipeg Jets’ Tanner Glass is anything but fragile.

The moderate scrapper exchanged rapid punches with the Buffalo Sabres’ Cody McCormick during Tuesday’s game in Buffalo, leaving a bit of red on the ice.

It didn’t appear until a rough takedown by Glass that McCormick started to bleed. He was escorted to the back for examination and a bit of repairs.

McCormick more than well could have kept his own ground as a veteran fighter with 16 scraps under his belt just last season.

Here’s the video:

The Sabres went on to win 6-5 in overtime.

Byfuglien’s Slow Start Topic Of The Day

from Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun, The head coach of the Winnipeg Jets spent a good chunk of Monday’s meeting with the media defending the play of Byfuglien, who has been subject to plenty of criticism in the early stages of the season for his limited production and routinely getting caught up ice and out of position. “He likes playing defence and I don’t think he sees himself...

Recap: Sabres 6, Jets 5

The newly relocated Winnipeg Jets' first visit to the First Niagara Center may as well have been sponsored by the number four.  In a game they never led until the final score indicated otherwise, the Sabres scored four power play goals and erased four Winnipeg leads to help Ryan Miller snap his personal four-game losing streak, defeating the Jets 6-5 in overtime.

Tanner Glass bloodies Cody McCormick, gets Gordie Howe hat trick

Tanner Glass is the Hugh Jackman of the NHL, in that he has two very distinct sides. He's a real softie, pretty much incapable of turning down a charity opportunity (such as when he raised nearly $10,000 playing Scrabble with some loser blogger for the Canucks For Kids Fund), but he's also a noted pugilist, more than willing to bash a face in, should the opportunity arise...

Winnipeg Jets (5-7-2) at Buffalo Sabres (8-5-0), 7 p.m. (ET)

Ryan Miller's recent problems in net have created an unlikely goaltender controversy in Buffalo. If Miller is denied a start for a third straight game tonight against visiting Winnipeg, it could get even worse.
