Sidney Crosby Gets Gordie Howe Hat Trick!

Sidney Crosby is officially the most vicious player in the NHL…not really, but he did get in a fight last night to the amusement of hockey fans everywhere. For those unfamiliar with the Gordie Howe Hat Trick, it is a goal, assist and a fight. This was Crosby’s first official NHL fight, and his opponent, Boston Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference, left with a bloody head.

He strikes without warning, and his prey can do nothing but take each vicious punch after vicious punch, until he skates off the ice bewildered and covered head-to-toe in blood and fecal matter.

The fight was awesome. Crosby is awesome. Take that Gretsky.
