Fans of other sports seldom "get it", but we all know that hockey just wouldn't be hockey without there always being a chance that a couple players (or more if we're lucky) might drop the gloves and throw down.
Thankfully fighting is still a part of the game and sometimes we even get that really special treat when the goalies join in on the action. This week we feature three of the more epic goalie fights that we still have in our memory.
Rick DiPietro vs. Brent Johnson
This one might not have lasted very long, but the one punch knockdown from Brent Johnson was pretty awesome, especially watching it in real time.
Chris Osgood vs. Patrick Roy
Chris Osgood may not have been one of the biggest goalies to play the game, but that didn't stop him from taking on one of the fieriest goalies to play the game, Patrick Roy. This is not only an epic goalie fight, it's just an epic fight period!
Ron Hextall Vs. Felix Potvin
How could we post a blog about goalie fights and not include Ron Hextall right? If you grew up in the 90's, hearing Ron's name is sure to bring a smile to your face as he was one of the craziest goalies to play the game. There are plenty of fights to choose from when it comes to Hextall, but this one against another big name from the 90's (Felix Potvin) was pretty fun to watch.
