I grew up watching the Flyers and the Broad Street bullies. Dave Schultz was the greatest.

Before the pacified hockey to appeal to the south west away from the very physical and brutal way it used to be played this brawl would have been a quick blurb on the news..

Oh. I was hoping that it was actual Senators with sabers in a wild brawl. I'd watch the CSPAN replay of that.

419 minutes in penalty minutes is the record.
this was only 100 minutes in penalties.still the best brawl I've seen in 15 years.
Gary Bettman will probably cry and call the UN.

Also, head over to hockeyfights.com and they've got all the clips you need.

Old-time hockey, Eddie Shore-style! Wow, that was a great game and really shows the kind of passion that is in the NHL.

Thanks man - it was heartwarming. It looked like Peters hit a ref when he was trying to hit Emery. Anyway, it was a joy to behold. A good time had by all.

Classic fight from the 70's was Dave Shultz punching out Pat Quinn from the Flames and Shultz thinking he had killed Quinn with one punch.....it was a scary fight to see.

I think the best brawl in recent years was the culmination of the Redwings Avs rivalry. That had a great goalie fight. Sabres seem to be getting in a lot of fights lately.

This would be good.

Get a whole bunch of sabers swinging wildly and maybe most of the Senators will lose their heads in the melee.....


Oh. Hockey game. Just a hockey game. No live Senators?
D*mn.

Lindy Ruff showed just what a coward he was by sending 5 brawlers out on drury's slip and fall. (that was not a hit.)

Probably Ovechkin, 12 years younger and 15 pounds heavier. Forsberg really isn't a brawler, not afraid of the mean stuff but doesn't usually dive into it either.

Dave Schultz was the greatest.

I grew up in Boston. Terry O'Reilly was the man! He tangled with The Hammer a few times. Plus he lead the charge into the seats at Madison Square Garden to "educate " some Ranger fans back in 1979.

There is an NHL (or pro hockey in general ) ping list. Try contacting Retrokitten or Hattrick.

the MN Norm Stars had the 2nd longest record in penalty minutes back in 81...406 minutes, I think, against the Bruins.

I liked Bob Probert when he was a Wing.
He could play, but also goon.

This egregious violence was clearly the result of the gangsta and rap music "thug" culture that pervades the NHL.

The North Stars and I think it was Chicago got into a fight before the puck was dropped.

The refs had not taken control of the game so it was almost 20 minutes before the police got things under control.

Both teams had all their men on the ice warming up when it started.

A classic!

Petey broke the code though by fighting Emery. It's supposed to be goalie on goalie, not a guy who is twice his size and not wearing 25 pounds of gear hitting on him.
