Goalie fights are so rare in hockey, we would be doing ourselves and the entire community at LBS a disservice if we did not share this video. The Penguins were beating the Islanders 3-0 late in the third period when the teams got into it. The goalies decided they didn’t want to be left out, so they chose to go. Brent Johnson skated across the ice to meet Rick DiPietro and absolutely decked him like he was one-punch Terry Conklin. Check the video:
This fight doesn’t come close to my favorite goalie fight — Patrick Roy vs. Mike Vernon — because it lacks in length. But it does prove to us that the versatile Rick DiPietro in fact sucks at two things.
