I'll tell you, that dopey Steve Downie is one courageous character. I mean, it takes real guts to reach around and punch a defenseless smaller man in the eye.

If you didn't see it, Downie slugged Leafs winger Jason Blake, who was being held by linesman David Brisebois in the third period of the Flyers-Leafs game on Saturday night. The two unlikely dance partners got hooked up together by chance during a scrum in front of the Flyers net. As happens in those situations, the players paired off. The diminutive Blake unfortunately got locked in with Downie.
