[video] Hockey fight! Dam Canadians at it again ;)

Recommended Posts

There was a fight recently where Ottawa's newer goalie Emery was scrapping with a regular player. Usually goalies would only pair off with other goalies. Some of the players were asked why they didn't come to Emery's aid. They said he was as tough as anyone and they wouldn't dare try to take over his fight.

Edit: Might as well watch it for yourself -

It's Emery's second fight after he already tangled with the Buffalo goalie. Check out the smile on Ray Emery's face. He's loving it.

How would they get the oppertunity?

They are at oppsite ends of the ice..

There is an additional penalty (or an automatic suspension or something) for a goalie crossing the red line but they usually meet at centre ice. Sometimes one goalie will go flying from one side of the ice to the other to get into the action. Goalie fights are somewhat rare as teams generally want to protect their valuable assets.

I don't understand why fighting is not stopped :p?!? In other sports fighting is not allowed, and in NHL you get the referee's just standing there and the commentators going "that was a good left hook".

Madness!

They do have blades on their feet and clubs in their hands. The theory is that the natural frustrations of the game would surface in nasty cheapshot-style stick work if fighting were ever eliminated. Plus, fans will always stand up for a better look.

man.. i love hockey fights!

You would have loved hockey from the 1970's. Fighting was more commonplace, including bench brawls.

Tie Domi and Bob Probert fight. Afterwards the rest of the players on the ice get into it.

Buffalo vs Detroit, late 80's-early 90's

A Sabre made the mistake of fighting Yzerman. Bob Probert to the rescue. He smacks the helmet off the Sabre goalie, then gives another player a cheap shot.

Atlanta vs Toronto, 1979

It's funny to watch some of them laying on the ice after fighting, from exhaustion I suppose.

This is a slug fest. These two teams have a history of beating the crap out of one another.

Here they go again.

Philadelphia vs Toronto, 1990s

And again. The goalies hockey-punch the crap out of one another this time (Potvin vs Hextall)

Not a brawl, but an aggravated fan falls into the penalty box, and Tie Domi has some fun with him.

Chicago vs Toronto, 1989.

Nothing too entertaining. While the players on both teams are holding and fighting, Gary Leeman and Denis Savard hesitate to fight by skating in circles for a few minutes before they throw a single punch. When they finally do Gary Leeman is jumped from behind by another player.

Bench clearing brawl.

Philadelphia vs Montreal, 70s

Another bench clearing brawl. Larry Robinson kicks the crap out of Dave "The Hammer" Schultz, who initiated the whole thing.

Philadelphia vs Montreal, 80s

The goalie, Ron Hextall initiates a brawl when he attacks Chris Chelios in retaliation for the

The Broad Street Bullies fighting the Bay Street Bullies, yet again.

Philadelphia vs Vancouver, 1980

This bench brawl involves the goalies, one of which is the current coach of the Washington Capitals. Just seeing Vancouver's wacky old uniform is worth it.

You can find a ton more on YouTube and Google Video by querying "hockey brawl"
