VIDEO: Junior hockey goalies climb over linesman in brawl

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=X9TulbQeKho

It was a big night for the Everett Silvertips, who managed to claw back from a pair of deficits to earn a 4-3 win over the Seattle Thunderbirds that pulled them within one point of their rivals for seventh place with just three games left in the Western Hockey League season.

With so much on the line, it was no surprise to see emotions boil over after Everett took the lead with less than three minutes remaining. Evan Wardley of the T-Birds took a charging major, leading to a wild melee to the left of Everett stopper Austin Lotz. When Lotz ventured out of his net to join the fray, Seattle's Brandon Glover roared down the ice to even things up.

Here's where it got goofy. Linesman Ryan Gibbons tried to collar Lotz, but that just allowed Lotz a few free shots. Gibbons then tried to correct his mistake by stepping in between the two. That didn't work out too well either, with both goalies all but climbing over him to get at each other.

Glover picked up the instigator and the game misconduct, but that probably just made the win a little sweeter.
