And people say fighting is bad for hockey. Because of this every hockey message board is jumping, fans are texting back and forth "hey did you see what happened!?", the folks that went to that game have a story to tell and a memory for life, hockey will actually make it in some national sports highlight packages, a former rivalry that has since died may now be rekindled. Washington should be looking for revenge the next game.
All in all, this incident is a net game for the league.
Not this one, man. Especially with Lecavelier and Downie out (still in the hospital). This is bad all around, they need to react swiftly and strongly to this game, especially Ray Emery, who should get a minimum of 3-4 games.
I don't know one person outside of Philly who really liked what this fight was all about, just flat out pathetic.
