Who do you think would win in a fight: an admiral or an icehog? What about 20 admirals vs 20 icehogs? That’s what happened at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee Sunday afternoon. Two struggling teams in the American Hackey (ahem, Hockey) League duked it out after Rockford’s Rob Flick (not to be confused with former Major Leaguer Rob Fick) and Milwaukee goalie Jeremy Smith decided to dance near the end of a media time out.

As you can see, the TV guys were busy covering the 50-50 raffle when the real action took place. The Miwaukee-Wisconsin Journal-Sentinel gives us insight to what led to all of the laundry on the ice following the melee:

It all started after Milwaukee’s Michael Latta and Rockford’s Shawn Lalonde fought at center ice with 9 minutes, 52 seconds left in the second. The two went to the penalty box and then there was a scheduled media timeout.

During timeouts, both teams gather by their respective benches and the goalies remain in front of their net. The faceoff was set for the Rockford blue line, according to Milwaukee coach Ian Herbers.

But for some reason, toward the end of the break, Rockford’s Rob Flick was alone in front of Admirals goalie Jeremy Smith when all of a sudden both players started swinging at each other.

Smith blamed the fight on eye contact. “I think we just looked at each other, and I think that’s what sparked it.”

Referees cut the period short, sending both teams to the locker rooms for an 18-minute intermission. 8 players were ejected, as were both head coaches, for failing to restrain them. Ejecting the head coach because he couldn’t hold 15 guys back from leaving the bench? That seems pretty fair.

As Puck Daddy points out, the best part of the whole clip is the public address announcer’s choice in post-fight music – Carl Douglas’ “Kung Fu Fighting”.
