Holtby got schooled, big time, by Emery. Emery raced up the ice to challenge Holtby who clearly didn't want to fight. He threw him around like a kite. Holtby won where it counts though, 7-0. Do you think Emery will, and should he, get a suspension for this?

You get a suspension for posting a link that wasn't really a link. Had to copy/paste it. Emery gets a suspension for being a douche. It's like the motherfranking Charlestown Chiefs, they have nothing the hell else to cheer for so they cheer for their team gooning it up in a way only the Flyers can. Bunch of assholes. Score some (Frank) goals, put on a display of actual hockey and don't be morons.

I'm curious to see how that started. What I found interesting is that the refs didn't stop it sooner. Holtby was on the ground, Emory was holding him up and continuing to pummel him. Instead of stopping the fight, the ref stopped the Caps from coming to stop it. Any other fight, the refs would have stopped as soon as Holtby was off his skates. I don't think he'll get suspended when the refs let it happen, and continue to happen. Guess that's Flyers hockey for you. If you can't beat them on the ice, BEAT them on the ice.

So how are goalie fights even allowed in todays game of hockey... As soon as their head gear came off aren't they supposed to hug and hold hands skating off the ice?

I think it's ridiculous the refs let that go on as long as it did. I'm all for a good old goalie fight but only when both players actually want to fight... Emery should be suspended.

And what a (Frank) joke, the dbag in Philadelphia thought it would be funny to make Emery the 3rd star of the game too. And some people wonder why the rest of the sports world can't and won't take hockey seriously.

Assault is a serious crime, luckily the darker skinned man attacked the lighter skinned man or it would have been a hate crime. I'm going to make some pre game quiche.

Ain't it an automatic suspension for a goalie crossing the center-line to fight? Thought I read something like that a while back, unclear.

What IS clear is that the helmet suspension makes these fights kinda stupid to watch - half the dudes on the flyers literally still had their visors on. Hopefully the disfiguring nose cuts that result from this will make the NHL reconsider.
