Video: Benn and Byfuglien drop the gloves in wild heavyweight scrap

Screen grab

We showed you video of the Mark ScheifeleTyler Seguin rock-paper-scissors battle from earlier tonight. But there was nothing friendly about what occurred between Jamie Benn and Dustin Byfuglien later in the game.

After a lengthy discussion between the two well away from the puck, Benn and Byfuglien finally dropped the gloves in a wild scrap between two big players.

Both landed some heavy shots, but Byfuglien delivered the decisive punch before they both fell to the ice just a few minutes into the second period of Thursday’s game between the Dallas Stars and Winnipeg Jets.
