Goalies Square Off During OHL Fight Night In Erie (Video)
Total Pro Sports -When you talk about “the good, the bad, and the ugly” in the Ontario Hockey League, we have already given you the good, and the ugly. Now it is time for the bad. Of course by bad we mean good. After all, who doesn’t enjoy a hockey brawl?
Two struggling clubs faced off in Tullio Arena when the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds visited the Erie Otters Saturday night and it didn’t take them long to let out some frustration on each other.
Things got heated early after a hit in the Greyhounds’ end sparked a fight between Dylan King and Michael Liambas (we’ll give this one to Liambas). That was just the beginning.
Less than a minute later, a check from behind in the neutral zone by Sault Ste. Marie’s Daniel Catenacci resulted in a giant skirmish with several fists being thrown. As the refs moved in to break things up, goaltenders Robin Lehner and Ramis Sadikov (of the Greyhounds and Otters, respectively) met at center ice bringing the already raucous crowd into an absolute frenzy.
They exchanged punches for the following 30 seconds or so before things were broken up. It is tough to make a decision on this one, so I think we will call it a draw.
With the Greyhounds up 3-0 in the third, Liambas would drop the gloves once again in an attempt to spark his club. He exchanged haymakers with a much larger Brian Shaw, but it was his final right hand that would put an end to this bout. The Otters would get one back, but it was not enough as Sault Ste. Marie added two more to take this unfriendly affair by a score of 5-1.
Although the fans in Erie did not get to see their club earn two points in the standings, they did witness them accumulate several on the fighting scorecards.
