Forget the usual cheer of the holiday season, Tuesday night in the National Hockey League was business as usual and where there is intense competition you can expect tempers to flare.

Arizona Coyotes goaltender Mike Smith let his frustration get the best of him on Tuesday, and with his Coyotes headed to yet another loss this season he made Dallas Stars' forward Radak Faska the focus of his rage.

Unfortunately for the fans in attendance they were deprived what could have been one hell of a show as the NHL officials thought it prudent to split the two men up before they could truly engage one another.
