NHL - Scoop Du Jour

There are conflicting reports, however, it seems Derian Hatcher of the Philadephia Flyers bit Travis Zajac of the New Jersey during a scrum in front of the net Friday night.

Zajac got his glove into the face of Philadelphia defenseman Derian Hatcher and then pulled his bare hand out. "I guess I got close to him and he bit me," said Zajac, who wore a splint on the middle finger of his left hand. I felt pain, I saw blood and then got stitched up and went back out."

Hatcher's version of the story was different. "If he's cut, good. But I didn't bite him," Hatcher said. "I didn't think anything of it until someone mentioned it to me. He went like that (face wash) right across my face. He got his glove on my tooth, almost pulled it out. It's all sore."
