Usually, you don’t see people celebrating a goal by dropping their gloves and starting a fight. But that’s not totally unexpected when you see a Flyers game. Just like the rare Scott Gomez goal, this type of thing doesn’t happen too often.
We’ve talked about Dion Phaneuf and Scott Hartnell before with their epic “Suck it, Phanuef” video from the NHL All-Star Game. Well, tensions are still high and the mouths are still flapping.
After Phaneuf and Hartnell bump and grind around the net in the first period, Hartnell finally gets the puck in goal. And to celebrate he decides to beat the tar out of Phaneuf, who is standing right next to him.
It’s a quick fight but a great one just to keep the Phaneuf-Hartnell storyline going until the next game.
