Because some of the best brawls occur off the ice.
AHL Fight Continues Into the Tunnel
While your bracket was being busted over the weekend, lips were being busted in an AHL hockey game between the Rockford IceHogs and The Chicago Wolves. Down 0-5 in the second period, Rockford defenseman Bobby Shea let the embarrassment get to him and dropped the gloves with Chicago wingman Ty Rattie. The fight - which started on the ice (you know, where you're supposed to fight) - eventually carried over in the tunnel while the players were being excused from the game. Shea crawled (seemingly for no reason; walking would have been fine) through security to pick another fight with Rattie while both men were headed to their respective dressing rooms.
