Give the coach the heave-ho. Why do hockey player drop their protective gear when they fight? Seems like it would make more sense to leave the padding on.

They drop the gloves to do more damage, they actually try to keep the helmet on generally (while trying to take the other guy's helmet off) but if it gets dislodged they get rid of it because it becomes a hazard (can get in front of your eyes so you can't see, having it hanging around your neck isn't so nice in a fight either).
