7. Punch-up in Piestany

Date: 1/4/1987
Game: Soviet Union vs. Canada
Location: Piestany, Czechoslovakia

You just don't see this in international hockey, and you really don't, to be fair. Unless you're watching D2: The Mighty Ducks. This battle royale also has one of the coolest names in sports history, "Punch-up in Piestany." Thank you, Czechoslovakia. This looks more like a battle scene from Lord of The Rings than a hockey fight, even the goalies are fighting, and everyone loves a good goalie fight. There wasn't even an attempt to restore order, minus the officials turning off the lights in an effort to stop the 20-minute melee, like that was going to get it done. SMH.
