    Default Great Hockey Moment from Last Night

    Im sitting at the bar with my dad and my brother around 5pm having drinks and food before the game. Most of the TVs are showing football with one showing the Yankees/Red Sox. So I ask the bartender to change the baseball game to the NHL channel because they are showing the Pens/BJs preseason game. They change the channel and no one says even or even notices. Which amuses me because A)the Yankee/Sox is a storied rivalry and B)there is always some NY/Boston DB who wants to shoot his mouth off. Anyhow, no one says anything or notices until there is a great fight in the Hockey Game with everyone in the section starts watching and reacting accordingly in unison. The fight ends, the fighters pat each other on the helmet, and entire section starts applauding with the next couple of minutes with people in the bar still talking about the fight. Gotta love hockey.

    Here was the fight.....

    One more reason hockey is the best sport on the planet, players with blades on their feet and sticks in their hands are given a chance to go 'mano y mano' if needed to settle things.

    That was a good tilt, but two willing combatants should take off their helmets if they are wearing visors and are going to drop the mitts.

    There was talk that this was going to be outlawed. Has that happened yet? I think that the league is worried about a player without a helmet falling backwards during a scuffle and suffering a life-threatening injury.

    I am conflicted on this. On the one hand, it would be a tragedy if someone lost his career or life due to an unfortunate accident. On the other hand, I find that I have extra respect for the guys -- like Wayne Simmonds -- who doff their helmets prior to fighting.

    Its a stupid rule.....how many fights have there been in the NHL and how many injuries occured? Its a very very small percentage and now its more likely a player is going to break his hand hitting a helmet.
