The NHL is the only professional sport that fighting isn’t the object of the game, that doesn’t do much to discourage brawling amongst the players. Let’s review some of the best brawls in NHL history. In October of 2011, Arron Asham of the Penguins literally put his fighting opponent, the Caps’ Jay Beagle to sleep with a slew of punches to the head. After Asham finished the job, he made a sleeping motion to the crowd, rubbing even more salt in the wound. One of the longest lasting battles was between Bryan Marchment and Craig Rivet back in 2004. Almost five full minutes of hay makers, leaving both men bloodied, made for extra entertainment besides the hockey game itself. The most lopsided fight of the last 20 years was between Joey Kocur and Mike Eagles. After a collision on the boards and some exchange of words, Kocur absolutely throttled Eagles, using his fists and the glass as a backboard, Directv savings, to put Eagles down and out in a hurry, and leaving him seeing stars. Goalies make fights in hockey comical, but a great one occurred when Chris Osgood whipped on Patrick Roy during the height of the Avs/Red Wings rivalry.
