Brutal back-fighting there from Crosby. I don't watch much hockey, so perhaps I have missed some background on a Pens-Thrashers feud. But even if there's history here, Crosby's attack seems remarkably out-of-line with standard mano a mano hockey fight procedure. You can punch a guy, but at least let him see your face.
