When the Admirals were busy playing yesterday against the Chicago Wolves I missed out on a wee bit of fun that our pals out in the Eastern Conference were up to. The Adirondack Phantoms and Portland Pirates had themselves a line brawl: complete with a goalie fight and a minor bench clearer.
Want to know the end result of all the paperwork for the poor officials? 329 combined penalty minutes. Why, if I didn’t know any better, I’d say the league might just be reviewing this one. While they do that – let’s look back on some other good ol’ AHL donnybrooks from the past few seasons.
Binghamton Senators vs. Norfolk Admirals: 120 combined PIM’s.
Rockford IceHogs vs. Chicago Wolves: 174 combined PIM’s.
Grand Rapids Griffins vs. Rockford IceHogs: 230 combined PIM’s.
Rockford IceHogs vs. Milwaukee Admirals: 166 combined PIM’s.
