Though the Straight Edge Superstar did not score, he joked that he gets the “fighting” part of hockey better than the shooting and skating parts of the game. Punk is getting ready for the biggest pro wrestling show of the year, WWE’s Wrestlemania XXVIII where he will defend the WWE Championship against Chris Jericho on April 1st.
Last night’s game had a WWE feel to it as several fights broke out between the bitter rivals in the NHL’s Western Conference with even all-star Hawks forward Patricke Kane adding to the battle with a body check on Cannuck’s Andrew Alberts. The Hawks won in overtime 2 to 1.
