One goalie getting into a fight is rare. Two goalies fighting each other, at least in hockey, is extremely rare (and awesome).  But in lacrosse? Well, that’s just another day at the office for the teams in the NLL.

The defending champ Saskatchewan Rush took on the Calgary Roughnecks in the former’s season opener and treated the fans to two goalies duking it out for no reason. Were they mortal enemies? Was it staged?

I have no idea because I hadn’t heard of the NLL until this story, but take a look at this fight. Thank goodness the two are wearing extra pads!

The two goalies squared off after about two minutes of brawling between the players, which saw most of the players tangled up with each other just a few minutes after the face off.

Here’s the video:

The final matchup doesn’t amount to much, but it’s fun to get there!
