See, hockey, this is what I'm talking about. Last night's NHL action included a league-record eight (!) games going into overtime, which is enough for even me to sit up and take notice.

The biggest of those eight games was Buffalo's 6-5 barnburner win over Ottawa. Both teams surrendered two-goal leads before the deciding shootout, but more importantly, there was an all-out melee early in the second period after Sabres captain Chris Drury took a vicious blindside hit. That's right, all 12 players on the ice dropped their gloves, including the goalies. Ottawa's Ray Emery liked it so much, he took on Sabres enforcer Andrew Peters after knocking down his outmatched fellow goaltender.
