Superstars in the NHL don't usually fight, so when they do, it's always a big deal.  Wednesday night in Pittsburgh, Steven Stamkos and Evgeni Malkin were the stars that dropped the gloves and the hockey world took notice.

In fact, the hockey world was so observant that a number of people noticed something strange about Malkin's equipment, more specifically his gloves.

Malkin wears two different gloves, one CCM and one Bauer, and apparently this isn't something he just started doing.

We'd love to know the reason why Malkin wears two different gloves, even if it's something as simple as for good luck.  Now that it's getting so much attention, you can bet young hockey players are probably going to want to try it out to try and be like one of the best players in the game.
