NHL looking into alleged Sestito hair pull

The NHL is looking into allegations that the Flyers’ Tom Sestito pulled Brandon Prust’s hair during Sunday’s loss to the Rangers, according to ESPNNewYork.com.

"That's something you don't do," Prust said, according to the report.

However, Prust seemed surprised that the league was looking into it and said he did not care whether Sestito was fined or suspended.

Sestito was involved in three fights in the game, including two with defenseman Stu Bickel. Sestito was given a game misconduct for his third fight, the limit for one player in a game. He collected 25 penalty minutes, nearly six times his actual ice time of 3:48.
