The NHL certainly hasn't lost its fight: San Jose Sharks defenseman Jason Demers was trying to punch Dallas Stars center Steve Ott when linesmen Brian Mach jumped between the two of them in an attempt to break up the fight.
For doing his job, the official got a knuckle sandwich right in the jaw. The incident took place on Saturday, and so far the NHL has declined to take action against Demers for the ref-slugging, which did appear to be completely accidental. Only in hockey.

This is a tough time to be a Minnesota sports fan.
I am not a native Minnesotan, but I am a sports fanatic, and have been here long enough to consider myself a fan of all our local teams. I moved here from a town (San Diego, CA) that has NEVER won a major sports championship of any kind - so one thing I can quickly recognize, is sports futility!
Hundreds of Central Minnesotans sampled 40 different soups and chilis in the 2011 Cold Spring Jaycees' Soup & Chili Bowl at the Cold Spring Brewery Distribution Center. Who won? Find out after the jump.
