Sorting through the aftermath of Leafs-Sabres brawl

The NHL pre-season game between the Buffalo Sabres and Toronto Maple Leafs featured plenty of left and right hooks, but the two clubs were nowhere near a boxing ring.

During the third period of Toronto's 5-2 win Sunday night, Sabres tough guy John Scott went after Leafs sniper Phil Kessel — who swung his stick at the enforcer — in the middle of an on-ice brawl in an incident that ruffled a few feathers.

Leafs coach Randy Carlyle said his club wasn't proud of its actions on Monday, and David Clarkson wound up with a 10-game suspension for leaving the bench to join the melee.

The National's Peter Armstrong sorts out the chaos and explains what will be the aftermath in the video above.
