Wow, if you didn't see it the other night watch the clip below. Of course I'm talking about the vicious cheap shot hit to the head of Senators' Dean McAmmond by Flyers' Steve Downie. After Downie hit McAmmond all of the Senators came in to pound Downie. Brian McGrattan got the most shots in it looked like, but Flyers' Jesse Boulerice came in to protect his teammate and threw some punches at McGrattan. Senators' Shean Donovan also tried to get some punches in, as Flyers' Sami Kapanen was trying to stop him. Watch the clip of the hit and scrum below.
