Great brawl between the Adirondack Phantoms and Portland Pirats, pathetic refereeing. Dangerous at times. AHL hockey, everybody!
Here’s an intense way to start your day! Watch the United States women’s hockey equivalent of Slapshot’s Hanson bros. kick some canuck ass in an Olympic championship preview.
The look on Färjestad Bollklubb winger Marius Holtet’s face is priceless. He’s all like, “Vad har jag gjort, ref?” and the ref’s all like, “Du var en mycket mycket dålig ishockeyspelare, Marius!” Classic Holtet…

Do not click if you are squeamish. The fall was bad.

Alain Berger of FC Bern doesn’t pull any punches, nor does he pull his gloves off to throw them. Going toe-to-toe with Sebastien Schilt of Gottéron, Berger decided he didn’t want to “go there”, and instead opted for some Olympic-style boxing. Watch him bob and weave his way out of any integrity as a hockey player.
Matt Martin, New York Islanders hockey player, is good at fighting people. Tom Kostopoulos, New Jersey Devils hockey player, is not. So when Kostopoulos backed up tiny teammate Stephen Gionta by challenging Martin to a fight, it wasn’t a surprise that he was soon knocked out with a menacing right from Martin. But while Martin is a bad man, he is a nice bad man. He called for the trainer because he knew he did a bad thing. Admirable courage from Kostopoulos, but he should probably be more careful next time. You know what they say, the bigger their balls, the harder they fall. [Break.com]
When 27 penalties are awarded following a hockey brawl, you would typically assume that people were adequately punished. But in this AHL fight between the Rockford IceHogs (hey, stop hogging our ice, other team!) and the Chicago Wolves, I’m not sure 27 penalties were enough. In a 2-1 game with less than 10 seconds left, I suppose that the IceHogs felt their win was secure. I don’t think these teams like each other, but I could be wrong. A list of the 27 penalties, after the jump. [Busted Coverage]
