The Best Thing About Hockey


Via Fan IQ comes this video of a truly awesomely epic college hockey fight. Forget two guys squaring off, or even the goalies getting involved, this is TEAM ON TEAM! The clip comes from a game between Eastern Michigan and the University of Illinois, the competition on the ice didn’t seem as well matched, with the Illini winning 10-1, but this fight in the 3rd period made the night worthwhile for the gents from Eastern Michigan.

    i don’t get why it’s allowed. i try to address counter-arguments for it here:

    but it still doesn’t make sense to me. i guess it’s just engrained in the hockey culture?
