For hockey fans theres nothing quite like an ol’ fashion brawl on the ice. The NHL has done a  their best over the last few years to crack down on the number of fights that occur during any given game by incorporating stiffer penalties, putting the instigator rule in place, etc. It’s all a bunch of crap really. So it’s nice to see that the boys in the minors, especially in the Central Hockey League (CHL),  aren’t letting the NHL’s silly rules stop them from playing some “Old Time Hockey” and on Saturday, the Allen Americans and the Fort Worth Brahmas got into a scrum that began as a one-on-one, but then turned into an All-American pummeling, even the goalies got in and mixed it up. Ahhhh, the Hanson brothers would be proud.


By the way here’s what the box score looked like when it was all done.
