What happens when two goalies fight? Do they get 5 minute majors then they get back to playing goalie or is it they get ejected?
Depends... if there's no other fights, they get 5 each and resume to play. Happened in the first Avs-Wings brawl in 1997. Vernon and Roy got the only fighting majors (believe it or not, only 22 PIMs were handed out in the whole brawl!) and both stayed in goal.
Mike Smith fought (or rather tried to fight) Aaron Voros earlier this season. He's the only goalie to pick up a fighting major so far.
goalie fights are fun, but i think a lot of goalies realize if they drop the mits they are gone for the game. and they may not want to jeopardize their teams. but hey if your team is getting killed then let em fly
I remember some good ones with Wings and Avs back in the 90's (Roy vs Osgood I believe). There was a big one in a Leafs and Flyers game on HNIC in the late 90's. I remember in that one fights broke out in the crowd and everything. My favorite one, seeing as I'm a Leafs fan.
