Apparently someone forgot to tell Florida’s Keith Ballard that it was Scott Hartnell wig night in Philadelphia. Either that or he didn’t care. Ballard caught Hartnell with a devastating hip check as the curly-mulleted winger attempted to blow past him down the right side. Hartnell went ass over tea kettle and as has been the recent trend in the NHL following a clean hit a melee ensued. Florida managed to get their focus back on hockey though, disposing of the Flyers 4-2 in a victory crucial to keeping their playoff hopes alive.
