Sometimes some of the most exciting fights are the ones that don’t last long at all. Nothing more satisfying than watching a guy get knocked out cold in two punches. 1 – 2- goodnight! Knockouts are some of the best hockey fights.
While fight numbers in the NHL have been steadily dropping for years, that doesn’t stop us from getting excited about them. Many Detroit Red Wings fans were elated when they signed Jordin Tootoo simply for the fact that it meant more hockey fights. There’s a primal satisfaction involved in watching two big guys punch their frustrations away. Just ask the ancient Romans.
So sit back, and enjoy some epic NHL fights ending in out-cold knockouts.
EPIC FAIL! 10 minutes of NHL own-goals [VIDEO]
It’s every NHL player’s worst nightmare. You’re battling for possession in your own zone, you’ve got 3 attackers buzzing around you, and your line is ready for a change. You fight and fight, and finally you strip the puck from the other team. You spin to clear the puck from your zone for a change, but it’s gone. The puck trickled off the end of your stick, and past your own unsuspecting goaltender, into your team’s net. Oh the humiliation.
It’s not something that happens very often in the top league in the world, but it does happen: scoring on your own net. It’s embarrassing, but players quickly move on from it. However, the internet does not. And they will remind you of it over and over for years.
