BizNasty: Paul Bissonnette ejected for not having jersey tied down vs. Blackhawks (FIGHT VIDEO)

Oh, that Paul Bissonnette. Everybody's favorite Phoenix Coyotes brawler was playing in his third career playoff game on Thursday night when he did what he does: He fought Brandon Bollig of the Chicago Blackhawks at 5:24 of the first period.

Alas, BizNasty had Biz-Whoopsie: His jersey wasn't properly tied down, and that meant an ejection from Game 4 of the Western Conference quarterfinals:

This was in violation of the infamous "Rob Ray Rule," so named for the former Buffalo Sabres forward who would slip his jersey and pads in a fight to gain advantage. From the NHL rulebook (46.13):

A player who engages in a fight and whose jersey is not properly "tied-down" (jersey properly fastened to pants), and who loses his jersey (completely off his torso) in that altercation, shall receive a game misconduct penalty. If the player  loses his jersey despite the tie down remaining intact and attached to the pants, the game misconduct is not applicable, however this must be reported to the League office so that the jersey and the tie down can be examined.

Well, if nothing else, he won the decision. And if this was going to happen to anyone, might as well be Paul Bissonnette because ... well, because this whole thing is just very BizNasty.
