Ok, I am a bit reluctant to post this video but frankly it is the best hockey fight I have ever seen, at least in a long time.
WARNING: If you don't like hockey fighting then you need to leave right now.
Last night about half way through the third period in the game between the Minnesota Wild and the Los Angels Kings, the Wild's Boogaard and Kings Ivanans took a typical face off scuffle and crafted one unbelievable hockey fight of old. I happen to click to the game minutes before the fight. Now a days, instead of being skinny, slimy and dirty, the hunters in hockey are gigantic and powerful. My wife got up and left the room right at the time I became glued to the screen and uttered the words..."wow, now that's a fight!"
Pay attention to the quick switch the commentators make from hockey play-by-play to ring side announcers - within a nanosecond the words puck, stick, and icing are exchanged for uppercut, jab, and weight advantage.
Fighting in Hockey - It is what it is, you have to appreciate it for that.
