You have to love Sabres-Senators games. Something always happens.
Lindy Ruff tried to say he didn't see the latest installment (nudge-nudge), Craig Hartsburg says it should be no big deal but let's get real. Andrew Peters felt it and had the bandage to prove it. And everyone watching on television and the giant HD board in HSBC Arena saw Jarkko Ruutu take a bite out of Peters' right thumb, Mike Tyson-style, on Tuesday night.
(Peters, one of the most gregarious Sabres, had the media in stitches by telling us it was his "texting thumb" that took the bite. "I'm cut pretty good," he said. "I won't be able to text message anyone. Now I actually have to talk to people which is kind of a bummer because I hate talking on the phone.")
Check out the replay again here and let 'er rip on the latest wacky installment to the Sabres-Sens hatefest. Does the NHL have to issue a suspension on this one? Marc Savard's chomp of Darcy Tucker in 2003 got a game, just for the record. Does Ruutu get away with it because four striped shirts on the ice all missed it?
