(UPDATE: The NHL has suspended Burns for 2 games for the incident.)
After the Florida Panthers' 2-1 win over the Minnesota Wild tonight, Brent Burns(notes) took exception to a hip check from Steve Bernier(notes). As players were mixing things up, Bernier first took a punch to the face from the Minnesota defenseman and as the two tangled, the butt-end of Burns' stick hit Bernier in the face. At first, Bernier was enraged and had to be held back by an official, but then he began to feel the effects of the butt-end and eventually needed help off the ice at BankAtlantic Center as he left a pool of blood behind. Burns was given five minutes for fighting and a game misconduct.
Here's video featuring two different angles of the incident from the FSN Florida and Minnesota feeds:
