Sabres goon Patrick Kaleta will face Brendan Shanahan and his videos of NHL justice after laying a vicious head-butt directed at Jakub Voracek in last night's Flyers win in Buffalo.

This is not the first time Kaleta has gotten dirty with the Flyers.

Most recently, Kaleta pulled the old yank-the-bench-door-open for Nik Zherdev to fall into the bench in the playoffs last season -- a move even we chuckled at. Then there was the time he reportedly got personal with Danny Briere and Scott Hartnell. Oh, and that other time he went after Mike Richards leading to a Richie elbow that lead to a questionable call.

But there's more. We were right in the middle of posting this when we saw Puck Daddy had covered it from all angles, so you should check it, including a highlighted screen grab of the most recent head-butt.

Here's to hoping Shanahan drops some heavy punishment on the dirty Sabre.
