One day after an American Hockey League brawl led to an epic center ice tilt between netminders Dustin Tokarski and Eddie Pasquale comes this video of another goaltender-enhanced donnybrook.

This one involved the Edmonton Oil Kings and Lethbridge Hurricanes of the Western Hockey League. The Oil Kings, a Memorial Cup favorite, had run up a 7-1 lead in the third period, creating the perfect storm for hockey hostilities. A cheap shot delivered by Lethbridge's Josh Derko on Edmonton's Curtis Lazar with just over two minutes remaining instigated a line brawl that quickly drew Laurent Brossoit and Ty Rimmer to the faceoff circle.

Brossoit, a highly regarded pick of the Calgary Flames, earns a slight edge in this one, but Rimmer (in red) gives a good account of himself.
