Phil Kessel vs David Booth: Literally, with video

New, comments

This ins't a statistical comparison. Kessel and Booth got into it today at practice during a special teams drill.

Teammates often disagree at practice, but today Phil Kessel and David Booth got into a bit of a tussle at practice. It appears to have began during a drill involving powerplay and penalty kill units.

Check out the video:

Toronto Sun writer Terry Koshan wrote about it as well.

A losing season can make tempers run hot. Did Booth jump on the "Kessel doesn't give a shit" bandwagon? That seems like something that could set him off easily at this point.

Of course I'm just speculating on rumours and items that aren't too surprising with how this season has gone.

You generally won't see players fight on a winning streak. Booth needs a contract next year, and others do as well, so they need this last few games to matter to them.

Is this the last we'll see of it?

Update: Twitter is awesome.
