UFC is huge right? Violent sports like football and hockey are huge with their undertones of physical combat? Then what are we waiting for? It’s time to make brawling a controlled sport. It’s as simple as several referees, a massive closed in mat and teams of fighters. This hockey game is proof it needs to be developed. You most likely have heard or seen pieces of this already especially if your from the tri-state, but recently the worst team in hockey, the New York Islanders brought hockey back to it’s roots with 3 periods of straight brawling with the Pittsburgh Penguins. This stems from a Feb 2nd meeting of the two teams in which the Islander’s goalie got dropped in one punch by the Penguins goalie and there was also another very cheap hit that gave an Islander player a concussion. This game from Feb 11th was the Islanders retaliation. This 17 min video catches all the highlights, well put together by AGreatDayForHockey87 on Youtube.
