Flyers ruffian Tom Sestito won’t face supplementary discipline for pulling the hair of Rangers forward Brandon Prust, reports Larry Brooks of the New York Post.

The fight – Sestito’s third of the game – occurred Sunday at Madison Square Garden during New York’s 5-2 victory.

After watching the video a few times, it looks like a hair-pull to me. The question is, was the hair the principal point of contact? And did Prust put his hair in a vulnerable position? Tough to say for sure. These things are always so subjective.
