Goons have always fought each other in hockey and quite often it has nothing to do with what has happened during the game. These guys just like to fight.
Well, this fight just takes the cake. Phoenix Coyote Georges Laraque and Raitis Ivanans of the LA Kings go at it here, and as luck would have it, Laraque was miked. A barrage of four-letter words that would make a sailor blush? Insults hurled at mothers and sisters? Nope. Just a gentle invitation and acceptance.
“You want to?”
“Throw? OK. Good luck, man.”
And with that, they waited a few seconds for the faceoff and then dropped the gloves and fought.
Hockey – a gentleman’s game.
