Three seconds into the game, the Rangers and Devils start beating the crap out of each other. Goon Squads!

I'm kind of hoping the Chiefs/Broncos game starts that way.

NFL players should wear hockey helmets.

No possible. Denver's toughest players are their cheerleaders, and men aren't supposed to hit women.

I kept thinking "Where'd the puck go?" Somebody should have tried a breakaway while the goons were going at it!

It's best to do it that way when there's bad history people want to settle up. Just settle up your scores and then play the game.

This was a fight between forwards. The defensemen stayed put until the whistle was blown....2 seconds into the game. Puck was dead.

When hockey isn't funny, it's just stupid. This was definitely both.

I find refs approach to hockey fights fascinating.

"Eh we don't care let em fight." Then at some point it's "Okay okay break it up. Time to play."

They care, they don't want to get punched in the face so they try and wait until they either fall on the ice or get so tired they obviously want the ref to step in.

A lot of times refs and linesmen try to keep players from fighting. Once swinging starts, the linesmen step back until the players are tangled up or on the ice. This (1) prevents the linesman from getting hit and (2) it's easier to break up two tired/beaten guys than two adrenaline filled guys. In the mean time, the ref stands back and watches to a deliver appropriate penalties and ejections.

In this older video you can see the linesman trying to seperate guys before the swinging starts while the ref keeps an eye where penalties will go. Then Patrick Roy comes out and the ref tries to keep him out of the action...with no luck.
