126 PENALTY MINUTES FOR THIS

04.14.08 10 years ago 16 Comments

The AHL regular season just wrapped up, and the Philadelphia Phantoms and Hershey Bears did it in impressive style, engaging in this brawl that was triggered when Bears goalie Daren Machesney gave a love tap to Phantoms bruiser Jesse Boulerice, who decided to be the bigger man and skate away before changing his mind and throwing the goalie to the ice. (Boulerice is possibly best known for being on the wrong end of Aaron Downey's fist).

In the video, after the initial fight, there's a lot of dullness until the replays kick in at the 2:45 mark.  But if you skip too much, you'll miss the announcers calling it a "donnybrook" and a "fracas."  Not bad, assuming they didn't have a thesaurus on hand.  Although I would have preferred to hear the word "rumpus."  Or "fist orgy."
