Philly. That was ****ing epic. We had TWO (2!!!) players left on our bench at the end of that game. It was brawl after brawl after brawl.

The Philly one had a mini brawl that began right after each face-off leaving less than a handful of players on each bench.

The Philly one was epic but I think we were more successful in the Buffalo brawl.

With Philly it was Neil, Chara and Fisher who pretty much won their fights while the rest of the team seemed to get their butts kicked.

Needless to say the Philly brawl was setting a statement while the Buffalo one was just holding our own.

Dziurzynski and Grant, and 1 or 2 of Borowiecki, Gryba and Sdao could all be on the team next year. Add them to the current group of Neil, Smith, Greening, Cowen and Methot, and we won't be getting pushed around.

Actually that group will likely lead to a few brawls next season.

More "memorable" is definitely the Flyers brawl.

I prefer the Buffalo brawl, however.

Spezza still holds the franchise record for PIMs in a single game because of the Philly brawl, no?

I believe the brawl in Buffalo played a part in how easily the Sens beat them - the reg. season conference champions - in the conference final, so I cast my vote for that. Plus, it was awesome to see the coaches yelling at each other with Rob Ray standing in between them looking awkward

I remember reading that Patrick Sharp said something like "My coach told me to fight you" before him and Spezza tried to brawl.

This. Murray vs. Ruff brought it to a whole other level.

The LA scrap in 2001 gets lost among the younger posters. It was pretty good. Andre Roy going at it with Potvin, Mair jumping off the bench, then the Hurme comes down and gets into it with Potvin leading to the one of the funniest incidents I've ever seen. Watch when he can't get his trapper off and is screaming at the bench to help him.

2 line brawls in 2001-2002.
Another one 2 seasons later in 03-04.
Another one 2 season later in 06-07.

No brawls in half a decade now. What gives?

In the past we've said "we need a line brawl to get this team together" and has worked in the past. Do we need another one of these? It's been a while, what gives?
i think i cried alittle bit :') i think we need to see more of these at least once a year...... its just.... just..... so beautiful :')

i miss all those guys especially carks and chara

I loved the L.A. brawl. Hurme's blocker and Murray blasting Fox afterwards are great memories.

Buffalo. Plus we played them several days later with half as many penalties AND our ECF series. Huge plot-line that year.

What's interesting about the Buffalo brawl is that it was the same night as an exceedingly rare HFBoards get-together at MacLaren's.

Turned out to be a good night to watch hockey.

Philly was a better fight I think, but Buffalo sticks out in my mind, and how awesome it was.

I honestly have to question if those voting Buffalo were too young to remember the Philly brawl well.

You wont find anyone that hates Buffalo more than me. Any time our biggest rivals come up I am about the only person that has Buffalo far and away at #1, but that was a pretty typical brawl.

The Philly brawl was something else. There hasnt been anything like it since, and it set a freaking NHL record for PIMs. Its been years, but it must have taken about an hour to get the clock to go down 2 minutes.

This isnt close. I dont think the Buffalo brawl is even in 2nd. That would go to LA IMO.

Philly, ... was not 'a' brawl, It was line after line of brawls. Almost the entire bench was in the box or gone. It was arguably one of the most entertaining scraps between two teams in a generation. We lost the game, but it also ended an era of 'soft' senators.

When hockey does start, i am going to miss Carkner.

Buffalo brawl is probably only winning because most of the people here probably didn't watch hockey when the Philly brawl happened.

One should be more memorable, the other one is more memorable.

I think this may be accurate. The Buffalo brawl was more recent, so it's more fresh in our memories, and for some, there's no memory at all of the Philly brawl outside Youtube.
