As is the case with most minor league hockey brawls that find their way onto the Internet, the best part of this one between the Bakersfield Condors and Ontario Reign of the East Coast Hockey League  on Saturday night just might be the announcer, as he completely loses his mind during the chaos.

It is, after all, "dogs and cats living together."



Ontario won the game, 5-1, and the two teams combined for 278 penalty minutes, including the fighting majors that were issued to the two goaltenders, Bryan Pitton of the Condors and Jean-Francois Berube of the Reign. Of course, even though Pitton scored a decisive win against Berube he has to lose some points for doing so with his goalie mask on. 

Almost all of the penalty minutes were handed out with less than two minutes to play in the third period when the above brawl broke out following a hit in the corner from Bakersfield's Ian McKenzie.

Goalie didn't have any choice.  Reign players apparently aren't capable of having a 1v1 fight.  Good on Condor's goalie for skating out to back up one of his guys who was getting beat on while he was down on ice by 2 Reign players.  Refs sure weren't doing much.

Those announers sound like they were hammered for that.   Good for them.    Good thing they finished their 2nd intermission Jager-bombs before the action in the third.    Bill Murray reference was a nice touch, needs work on the delivery though.   Thumbs up guys.
