Let 'em scrap

Tyler Muhs, Rochester, N.Y.

I just finished watching an amazing Blackhawks-Blues game that featured 12 goals and two fights and almost a third fight between previous combatants John Scott and Cam Janssen.

The brawlers were chatting it up on the way to the faceoff when the officials stepped in and separated the two and subsequently awarded them with coincidental unsportsmanlike penalties.

Is this what the NHL has become?

Instead of a great bout that adds fuel to the rivalry and sets up the next Blackhawks-Blues game, we are treated to an embarrassing reality that is Gary Bettman-era NHL.

Being a lifelong hockey fan (more importantly, a Blackhawks fan) it frustrates me to see something so ridiculous.
