Less than 10 minutes into the first game of the tournament for either team, as part of a larger scrap between the teams, Gudas unleashed a vicious, no-look, punch to Giroux that dropped the Flyers captain with one punch.

Ouch. You can see Giroux in the background getting helped by a linesman after taking the hit. Each of them ended up with two-minute minors after this scrap.

It'll be interesting to hear after the game from both players what happened during this play.
