The Minnesota Wild had a rough start to the season but have turned it around a bit recently.
They've won three games in a row and are 5-5-0 in their last 10 and sit just five points out of first place.
That includes a nice 6-2 win against the San Jose Sharks last night that was a bit of a beatdown in more ways than one.
Sharks' defenseman Nikolai Knyzhov decided to drop the gloves with Wild forward Marcus Foligno and it was a brutal mistake.
Foligno cracked him so hard with just one punch and Knyzhov started bleeding immediately and after a couple more, Foligno called the refs over to stop the fight.
Check out the fight below:
