242 Penalty Minutes Handed out in AHL Game
I really only need one hand to count the things that are better than a good AHL brawl.
The contest between the Springfield Falcons and Bridgeport Sound Tigers from last Friday ended up 5-2, but it wasn't the goal scoring that kept the fans wanting more. 242 penalty minutes were handed out when it was all said and done from some solid donnybrooks thrown into the game. In the video above, the highlight starts out as exclusively goals, so skip ahead to about 2:45 into the video to see things go bananas.
The second fight (at about 3:10) has some big punches thrown, but isn't too exciting compared to the line brawl that takes place right after at about 3:37. Some 2-on-1's, some guy's skating to find a new opponent, a few body slams and not nearly enough linesmen to break up the action.
