Bahahaha, that was good for a chuckle and smile. As a ref I always got a kick out of guys throwing punches at each other with gloves and helmets on, like "YEAH, you showed him Jimmy, I am sure he will feel it tomorrow..."
I was just telling my daughter (10 1/2) the other day during the Flyer/Ranger game about bench clearing brawls and how it used to be. I miss the days before the 3rd man in rule. Bench clearing brawls were part of hockey. H***, even baseball has more now. Sad.
