Sabres forward Drew Stafford, who isn’t known for dropping the gloves, took exception of a hit from behind from Flyers forward Scott Hartnell on teammate Tyler Ennis. Although he clearly lost the fight, he won the battle with his teammates, who were appreciative of his efforts.

Earlier in the game, Hartnell laid a hit on Jason Pominville.

Stafford’s last fighting major came back in February of 2010, in a fight against the Blue Jackets R.J. Umberger.
