oddly enough, one of the worst beatdowns i've ever seem in a hockey fight is from 2 goalies. i think you all know what i'm talking about.
I feel kinda bad for Salo. He probably would've lost regardless, but his gloves were probably strapped on too tight to get them off. You can't throw punches or grab anything with a catching glove on your hand, and punching with a blocker would be just dirty, illegal and awkward.
