As you can see, a guy in a Sidney Crosby jerseys is in a verbal disagreement with some Blue Jackets fans. He moves away from the pack, and a Jackets fan is still engaging with him. The Penguins fan then hit him with his right fist to the face and then headed to the exit.
Walking, and then briskly walking through the metal detectors, with an angry mob of Columbus fans chasing him.
What happened next is a bit of a mystery. We reached out to the Blue Jackets for comment and haven’t heard back. The Pensblog, however, published this image, allegedly from the aftermath:
