Picture Of The Day: Watch The Eyes Ref!

During Monday’s game between Slovakia and Denmark at the 2011 IIHF World Hockey Championships, Miroslav Satan and Jesper Jensen (you can guess which one is Slovakian and which is Danish) mixed it up after the whistle, leading to this rather vicious eye-gouge from one of the linesmen.  I guess with so little fighting taking place in international play, the IIHF doesn;t feel the need to teach their officials how to properly break up a fight.

In case you were wondering, Satan would regain his vision in time to score one of Slovakia’s four goals during their 4-1 victory.
