Ukraine goalie loses mind during fight

I enjoy a good goalie fight as much as anybody, but what Evgeny Tsaregorodtsev, a goaltender for Donbass Donestsk, a team from the Ukraine, did in an exhibition game on Tuesday night against Slovakia's HK Nitra, doesn't really fit in the "fight" category. After using his stick to crack an opponent over the head during a scramble in front of the crease, helping to spark a line brawl, Tsaregorodtsev completely lost his mind for a couple of minutes as seen in the video below.

He managed to take out his frustrations on the net, the fans, the glass and, well, pretty much anybody or anything that happened to get in his way between the ice and the locker room.

The important news? Donestsk went on to win the game 3-1. Exciting.

Even though this doesn't really count as a "goalie fight," seeing as how the other netminder didn't seem to get involved (whether that was due to his own common sense, or simply out of fear), it's worth pointing out that we did see a stretch of goalie fights in the NHL last season, including two involving Pittsburgh's Brent Johnson, as well as a playful bout between Boston's Tim Thomas and Montreal's Carey Price, neither of whom seemed all that interested in doing any damage to the other.

None of them featured the Wild and zany antics of this goalie from the Ukraiine.

Hockey goalies are the NFL's version of the kicker. They go mostly unnoticed in games unless they fail to score or stop a score at the end of a game. And people do not ever want to see the goalies or kickers get into a fight. They are seen as the least athletic player on a team.

He's done it!! He's done it!!!
lumpoco has shocked the world and claimed the heavyweight title of the dumbest fan...IN THE WORLD!!!!!
We all bow to your stupidity!!

That lumpcoco comment was funny - just because the guy was really serious.  He wasn't being a smart a** or anything.  He obviously isn't a hockey fan and clearly has never even seen a game before.  It just amazes me how some people feel the need to comment on everything - even things they have no clue about.  Then to be so steadfast like that's the way it is hahaha too much

Was expecting a lot more for someone supposed to have "lost their mind." What a waste. Try to be at least somewhat accurate with the headlines. I've seen better tantrums by coaches at AA baseball games.

Not that exciting.  I was expecting a lot more.  The blows to the head with the stick were out the ordinary, but everything else was not that major.

that was possibly the dumbest comment I've ever read on CBS lumpoco. You basically stated that the goalie doesn't matter and they can play without them for the majority of the game. They don't matter because they don't score? Idiot, who do you think keeps the other team from scoring..your stupidity truly amazes me..
