Hockey fights aren’t as fun as they use to be, maybe all the talk of brain damage in athletes is starting to resonant. However, when someone pulls of a Superman punch on skates. I’ll admit, a pretty awesome thing to see.
The beatdown went down in the first period of Anaheim’s 6-2 shellacking of the Flyers Tuesday night in Philly. Ducks defenseman Kevin Bieksa squared off with Flyers defenseman Radio Gudas for an old-fashioned heavyweight fight and then Bieksa hit with the leaping Superman punch right in the moneymaker. And that was the end of that.

And Gudas should have known this was a possibility, as this isn’t the first time Bieksa has thrown this strike.
Did it a looong time ago against Mike Richards: https://t.co/HjcqXxPqd4
