Fight video: Ugly hit leads to ugly scene between Blues, Devils

38 Comments

The St. Louis Blues and New Jersey Devils don’t really strike you as natural rivals, but they won’t need to work hard to drum up disdain after Tuesday’s game.

The video above really says it all.

Bobby Farnham set off the chain of violence by responding to a Dmitrij Jaskin check with a clear “interference” hit, which drew a major penalty.

Farnham and Kyle Brodziak received misconducts from the resulting action, which involved a one-sided fight between Ryan Reaves and Jordin Tootoo that’s … honestly a little tough to watch.

Hockey Fights also captures some of the mayhem in GIF form:

So, what do you think? Should Farnham and/or anyone else expect a call from the Department of Player Safety?
