Big Brawl Between Vancouver Canucks and Chicago Blackhawks: Video



These days, almost all of the great hockey line brawls are from the minor leagues. The NHL has gotten rid of most of the massive fights, but every now and then the league gives fight fans something great to watch. While this might not be the best brawl, it does have a couple of moments worth checking out.

Last night, the Vancouver Canucks visited the Chicago Blackhawks, shutting them out 4-0. During the third period of the game, the Blackhawks’ Dustin Byfuglien got stopped on a break by Roberto Luongo. Byfuglien then gave Luongo a shot to the head, knocking him over. Soon after, the brawl started, complete with bodyslamming and hair-pulling.

Yes, hair-pulling. The Vancouver Canucks’ Alex Burrows should hang his head in shame after he pulled Duncan Keith’s hair while the two fought.

As for the penalties, somehow all of this fighting resulted in just two fighting majors.

Here’s the complete breakdown:

3rd Period
Chicago interference with goaltender – 2 min 5:50, D. Byfuglien
Chicago fighting – 5 min 5:50, B. Eager
Vancouver fighting – 5 min 5:50, K. Bieksa
Vancouver misconduct – 10 min 5:50, S. O’Brien
Chicago misconduct – 10 min 5:50, B. Eager
Chicago misconduct – 10 min 5:50, C. Barker
Vancouver holding – 2 min 5:50, H. Sedin
Chicago misconduct – 10 min 5:50, D. Keith
Chicago roughing – 2 min 5:50, A. Burish served by M. Havlat
Chicago misconduct – 10 min 5:50, A. Burish
Chicago roughing – 2 min 5:50, A. Burish served by M. Havlat
Vancouver misconduct – 10 min 5:50, K. Bieksa

Note that Alex Burrows is not on this list. The New NHL: Where it is apparently not a penalty to pull a guy’s hair during a fight.
