Video: Scott Hartnell Scores A Goal, Then Drops The Gloves

Most players celebrate scoring a goal by hugging teammates or raising their stick in the air... Scott Hartnell celebrated scoring the opening goal of last night's game, by dropping his gloves and fighting Dion Phaneuf.

You'll see Phaneuf hit Hartnell from behind into the boards right at the start of the clip, which appears to be what set Hartnell off. But you gotta love that he isn't going to pass up a score chance just to drop the gloves, but at the same time he isn't going to let scoring a goal cheer up him enough to avoid going after someone.

Claude Giroux says you shouldn't make Hartnell angry because you wouldn't like Hartnell when he's angry.

"It was typical #hartnelldown, but I saw the replay and he got tripped," Giroux said. "He stayed in there with a goal and a fight. When he gets pissed off, that’s dangerous for the other team. He’s on the puck and he’s jumping."

No word on whether Hartnell told Phaneuf to "suck it" at any point during the fracas...
