Better to be involved in that kind of mass beat down than in the one that occurred in St. Louis tonight.

I know, right?! Remember that big bench clearing brawl the Islanders had last year that really jump started that stellar run of theirs to the cup last year!

Reminds me of a video I saw the other day. SPHL’s Huntsville Havoc and Mississippi Surge went crazy and guys were in the other teams benches... was crazy.

Jesus.  Great, half our farm system has a concussion now.  Mrazek got beaten to a pulp - love how the ref slid his lifeless corpse away from the other goalie.


Also, what the hell was that siren going off in the background?  Is that some sort of signal for everyone to pretend they're in "Slap Shot"?

 

Great call on that Islanders/Pens brawl by @stevkrause above.  The teams with the "best fighters" are usually the teams in the bottom half of the standings.  Probably because you have to offer some raw meat for the fairweather fans to chew on.

What the hell set that off?  Looks like the Griffs got pounded too, everywhere I looked I was seeing guys in white eating fists.


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

That was more entertaining than that fiasco of a game against the Blues.

Tatar is the MAN... however Griffins looked pretty much "scary".... Just like the Red Wings last night...

The Griffins got absolutely beat up (apart from Tatar at 3:50) because the Rockford 4th line goons were up against one of the Griffins scoring lines which obviously had no real fighters on except for Aubry who still got beaten up.

 

Props to Tristan Grant for leaving the bench to go after Beach who was trying his best to send Sheahan to a hospital at centre ice, even if he's going to get a massive suspension for it. Poor Callahan had two guys trying to pound him at once. Real goonery from the Ice Hogs. Beach will have a target on his head when these two next meet.

 

If anyone's interested, the Griffins won 11-6 with a hat-trick from Callahan.

Beach is kind of crazy... but really crazy. I don't have a chance to watch Griffins games... are they tough or they are kind of Detroit (skill team - which got beaten badly last night).

McArdle acted tough too. ;)

The Griffins have the 11th most fighting majors in the AHL. However, the brawl was started when the Griffins tough players were not on the ice. Good to see Grant get some retribution on Beach.

To be fair, the Wings could ice Tootoo-Abby- Bert with Smith- E and do something similar to the first lines of CBJ, FLA, Oilers, NYI, etc. The Griffins did get beat up, but it wasn't because Rockford targeted players who had experience fighting.
