A stick-y situation among Duck fans in Anaheim [UPDATED]

A fight broke out last night in Anaheim over Scott Niedermayer's stick. Relax, Duck fans, it was not in his possession during the brawl.

After Niedermayer scored the game-winning goal in overtime to give his team a 4-3 decision over the Tampa Bay Lightning, he tossed his stick to a little girl in the stands. When a man tried to grab the stick intended for the little girl, fans intervened and a brawl ensued.

Niedermayer watched the battle helplessly. "It was for the little girl," Niedermayer said.

[Updated at 12:07 p.m.: The Anaheim Ducks said today in a statement, “Following the incident last night, the Anaheim Police Department questioned the individuals involved and filed a police report. The Ducks cannot comment on any further action that may be taken at this time. As an organization, we do not condone or tolerate this type of behavior, and will treat this case accordingly.”]
