Down 5-0 early in the third period against the Pittsburgh Penguins, the Phoenix Coyotes wanted to show a little competitive fire. So Oliver Ekman-Larsson(notes) gave Evgeni Malkin(notes) an extra cross-check on the leg; the Penguins took notice, a scrum ensued and soon Taylor Pyatt(notes) of the Coyotes and Deryk Engelland(notes) of the Pens were paired off in a fight.

It wasn't much of one, as Engelland landed a punishing right that dropped Pyatt. Check it out:

Check the 1:18 mark of the clip above for the brutal slow-mo footage of the KO that ended Pyatt's night. No wonder BizNasty called him "the only man to ever beat up Chuck Norris." (Sadly, no Engelland v. Bissonnette 2 on Monday night after this bout earlier in the season.)

The Penguins won the game, 6-1, as Malkin had a 5-point night (2 goals and 3 assists) and Sidney Crosby(notes) extended his points streak to a ridiculous 21 straight games.
