On a delayed penalty call Jay Beagle of the Washington Capitals was destined for the penalty box for an infraction on Kris Letang.
Jay Beagle skates off the ice after being pummeled by Arron Asham of the Pittsburgh Penguins.
That wasn’t enough for Arron Asham, enforcer for the Penguins. who engaged in his 99th fight of his 12th NHL season.
Beagle, who has been in a couple of AHL scrums and one NHL preseason fight, didn’t last too long against the heavy hitter in Asham.
Asham released a fury of two hard hits to the face of Beagle, resulting in an excess of blood even too violent for Toronto news casts to show. (And I’d image mostly all news casts.)
Beagle eventually yanked a busted tooth on his way off the ice.
Although being target for picking on a smaller fish, Asham applauded Beagle’s ability to skate off the ice on his own two feet with stick taps from the penalty box.
The Capitals, however, had the last say, winning 3-2 in overtime.

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.
