For those who like their NHL violence varied and wanton, we present Thursday's Ottawa at Buffalo matchup, which makes the Spanish Inquisition look like a tickle fight. The Sabres' 6-5 OT win featured 100 total penalty minutes, with eight penalties for fighting, four for hooking, two for instigating and one for goalie leaving the crease (our favorite). There was also this glorious excerpt from the penalty summary:

05:13 Phillips: Game Misconduct - 10 min.
05:13 Kaleta: Game Misconduct - 10 min.
05:13 Volchenkov: Fighting - 5 min.

Damn it, we went to the snack bar at 5:11! (The Sabres' Andrew Peters will serve his penalty time in mountainous regions of Alaska wrangling Kodiak bears).

And we'll say it again: If this had happened in the NBA, the league would be disbanded.
