Replay of the Day: Usually when a player registers a Gordie Howe hat trick, his goal is not followed immediately by a fight he instigates. But Philadelphia Flyers forward/instigator Scott Hartnell is not your usual player.
What better way to celebrate the game’s first goal than to slash one of the league’s all-star defencemen and throw down for seven penalty minutes?
Thursday night’s play quickly brought to mind a mic’d-up Hartnell’s seemingly good-natured chirp of “Suck it, Phaneuf!” after his line scored during the All-Star Game.
Bonus throwback replay: ”Suck it, Phaneuf. Woo!”
