Think what you want about fights in the NHL, but when two players drop the gloves and let the fists fly, no-one in the stands stays seated for very long.
A fight can gain momentum for your team or be the final blow in a game; either way they get people excited.
Most of the time, it's the team's two tough guys that go toe-to-toe in a good old-fashioned bout, but sometimes when things get even more crazy, something happens that no-one, and I mean no one, can take their eyes off of.
A fight is one thing, but the minute that goalie from "the other end of the ice" starts his skate down towards the action; NHL fans know it's on.
Ding, ding, ding. It's goalie fight time.
It doesn't happen very often, but when it does it's one of the most exciting things that can happen in a game. When tempers flair and even the goal tenders can't take it anymore, and start chucking' knuckles.
They are either brief due to stepping in of the referees, or instant classics that live on YouTube and in fans' memories forever.
Here now are those instant classics, the goalie fights you'll never forget.
