This is the best hockey fight video we’ve seen in a long, long time. Does it matter that the NHL is still locked out? Nope, because as long as the AHL is supplying fight videos like this most people won’t even notice. In Saturday’s game between the Binghamton Senators and Syracuse Crunch, Senators goalie Robin Lehner got poked and prodded by nearly every member of the Crunch. Madness ensued.
Guys paired up, but there weren’t punches being thrown…until Lehner emerged and started throwing some cheap shots at a Crunch skater. Not happy with the situation, Syracuse goalie Riku Helenius came down the ice to encounter Lehner. Bad move Helenius, bad move.
Some fans reached out to Lehner on Twitter in the days after the fight:
Point to @LegendKiller613. Lehner wasn’t challenged out of the blue. Unwritten hockey rule you don’t sucker punch a guy in the head who’s already in a fight.
P.S. Am I the only one who expected Lehner to just lose his sh*t and pull a Dean Portman?
