GOALIE FIGHT! GOALIE FIGHT! Swiss hockey league game erupts into brawl (video)

Peanut butter and chocolate, Christina Hendricks, goalie fights. Those, in some order, are three of the greatest things in the world, and while the staff here at Off the Bench are, until tonight’s festivities at least, fresh out of Reese’s cups (and are also banned from going within a collective 600 feet of Christina Hendricks), we do have a goalie fight for your enjoyment, straight out of the Swiss National League A. The face-off between the dueling netminders comes, as it so often does, in the midst of a full-on brawl between both sides, and as an added bonus, thanks to the ongoing lockout, there’s a smattering of NHL players involved as well. Brett McLean! Dan Fritsche! Logan Couture! But enough jibber jabber, onto the promised violence:

Even for someone, such as myself, who isn’t much of a hockey fan, I do have to applaud the sport for having brawls, where, you know, ACTUAL PUNCHES are thrown (looking at you, baseball and basketball). Hell, there’s as much action in this minute-long clip as in the last three Heavyweight title fights combined, and way more skill.

And, having just outed myself as something less than hockey fanatic, I’ll leave the customary judgment on who won the brawl to you– our educated, qualified, visually-attractive readers. Drop us a comment below and let us know who you think won, or, if in typical Swiss fashion, it was a tie.

    uh, that was not a hockey fight. no gloves were dropped, no knuckles landed the face, and you are an idiot. this happens about 20 times a game in every nhl game, if we had nhl still i guess.

    Why was that car driving around on the ice in the background?
