Blues’ Jordan Binnington gets ejected, nearly fights Marc-Andre Fleury

To the surprise of probably no hockey fan, the most hot-tempered goalie in the NHL was ejected after kick-starting a huge scrum … and he nearly fought the other team’s netminder on the way out.

The St. Louis Blues’ Jordan Binnington went after Minnesota Wild forward Ryan Hartman after Hartman scored and clipped him while skating by. Binnington, who had already exchanged words with the Wild bench earlier in Wednesday’s game, took exception and struck Hartman with his stick hand. That touched off a huge scuffle as Hartman fell to the ice, a scrum that Wild goalie Marc-Andre Fleury – famously one of the league’s nice guys – tried to join.
