I want to apologize to all of our loyal readers for that headline. It wasn’t a fight. It was a beating. It was a slaughter. I just hope you put the kids to bed before it happened. 

In what was a bizarre turn of events, real life NHL linesmen actually let two willing combatants settle a score themselves with a good old fashioned hockey fight. Who woulda thought? In fact, the presumed deceased Predators victim, Derek Grant, even initiated the scrap. And when he did Adam McQuaid took the frustration of two long weeks out on the poor guy.

God bless the NHL. God bless Quaider. God bless America.

PS: The league will probably fine both of those refs behind closed doors for allowing a fight.
