No matter what’s going on with the NHL, hockey fans can always count on the AHL for some classic old time hockey. Over the Thanksgiving weekend, the Worcester Sharks hosted the Portland Pirates in a classic physical battle. The Sharks would go on to win the game 5-1 but the six total goals weren’t making the headlines in this one, as the teams combined for 15 total fighting majors and 143 PIMs. Check out a list of the penalties below, compliments of TheAHL.com: 1 – POR Klinkhammer, 6:33 – Unsportsmanlike conduct, 2 min 1 – WOR Gourde, 6:33 – Slashing, 2 min 1 – POR Dziurzynski, 12:16 – Roughing, 2 min (PP) 1 – WOR Mashinter, 14:14 – Roughing, 2 min (PP) 2 – POR Brown, 1:42 – Fighting, 5 min 2 – WOR Gogol, 1:42 – Fighting, 5 min 2 – POR Louis, 2:15 – Fighting, 5 min 2 – WOR McLaren, 2:15 – Fighting, 5 min 2 – POR Rechlicz, 2:17 – Fighting, 5 min 2 – WOR Bonneau, 2:17 – Fighting, 5 min 2 – POR Brodeur, 3:06 – Fighting, 5 min 2 – POR Lane, 3:06 – Unsportsmanlike conduct, 2 min (PP) 2 – POR Lane, 3:06 – Fighting, 5 min 2 – WOR Acolatse, 3:06 – Fighting, 5 min 2 – WOR Mashinter, 3:06 – Fighting, 5 min 2 – POR Summers, 3:47 – Cross-checking, 2 min (PP) 2 – WOR Stalberg, 11:06 – Tripping, 2 min (PP) 3 – WOR Tennyson, 0:13 – Interference, 2 min (PP) 3 – POR Louis, 6:25 – Slashing, 2 min (PP) 3 – POR Louis, 6:25 – Fighting, 5 min 3 – WOR Acolatse, 6:25 – Fighting, 5 min 3 – WOR Reid, 8:01 – Hooking, 2 min (PP) 3 – POR Dziurzynski, 11:47 – Fighting, 5 min 3 – POR Rechlicz, 11:47 – High-sticking, 2 min (PP) 3 – POR Rechlicz, 11:47 – Roughing, 2 min (PP) 3 – POR Rechlicz, 11:47 – Roughing, 2 min (PP) 3 – POR Rechlicz, 11:47 – Unsportsmanlike conduct, 2 min 3 – POR Rechlicz, 11:47 – Game misconduct – Continuing altercation, (46.5) 10 min 3 – WOR Acolatse, 11:47 – Roughing, 2 min 3 – WOR Doherty, 11:47 – Roughing, 2 min (PP) 3 – WOR Reid, 11:47 – Fighting, 5 min 3 – POR Lane, 11:50 – Roughing, 2 min (PP) 3 – WOR Pelech, 11:50 – Instigating, 2 min (PP) 3 – WOR Pelech, 11:50 – Fighting, 5 min 3 – WOR Pelech, 11:50 – Misconduct – Instigating, (46.10) 10 min 3 – WOR Pelech, 11:50 – Game misconduct – Aggressor, (46.2) 10 min 3 – WOR Irwin, 16:28 – Hooking, 2 min (PP) Matt Pelech (27 PIMs) of the Sharks and Joel Rechlicz (23 PIMs) of the Pirates led the way in individual PIMs in this one, which can be seen in the video below.
