Zdeno Chara Laughingly Mocks Mere Mortal Who Insists on Fighting Him

Monday April 21st, 2014

In one corner 6'2", 198 pound Detroit Red Wings forward Brendan Smith. In the other corner we have 6'9", 255 pound Boston Bruins dream eater Zdeno Chara.

Nobody, especially Chara it seems, would deem this match up a fair fight, so it's probably for the best that a referee separated the two players (although this could have been one of those situation where Smith was shouting for someone to hold him back). But the look on Chara's face during the skirmish is borderline haunting. That's going to stick with me for awhile.
