Orlando Solar Bears vs. Florida Everblades

April 22, 2017

The Orlando Solar Bears defeated the Florida Everblades 3-0 in the fourth game of this year's ECHL Kelly Cup playoffs, but more importantly, the team got into one hell of a hockey fight in the last minute of the game. "It's a yard sale here at the Amway Center," cried the commentator after Mitchell Heard started going at it with Mason Marchment in front of 8,000 fans at Amway Center. Though fights at hockey games aren't uncommon, this particular punchfest encompassed everything you look for in hockey brawls – bare-fisted cheap shots, goalies dropping elbows, equipment strewn across the ice, and, of course, a portly kid playing air guitar in the stands. (Check the video.) Sadly, the series went to the Everblades, but we'll always have this to remember.
