Penguins vs. Canadiens: Brendan Gallagher high-sticks Matt Cooke

Don't mess with the little guy.

Note to NHL players: don't try to hit Brendan Gallagher. He will blind you with his stick.

Matt Cooke learned that the hard way on Monday. Cooke went in for a hit along the boards and ended up almost getting his eye poked out.

Ouch. I'm pretty sure that Gallagher learned that move from some old samurai on the top of a misty mountain somewhere.
