Gotta hand it to Joel Thériault and Gaby Roch. They sure know how to put on a show.

The two squared off over the weekend in a semi-pro game between Thetford Mines and Marquis de Jonquiere in Quebec's Ligue Nord-Américaine de Hockey. Though Roch was giving up four inches and 40 pounds to the one-time Capitals prospect, the bout ended up being an epic battle.

No need for either guy to go out to dinner after the game -- they both got fed in this one, exchanging blows for nearly a minute before sharing high fives and a hearty embrace in the aftermath.
