Tales of the Tape: vs. Atlanta 1/12/08

Another three periods, plus OT and even a shootout without anyone dropping their gloves (though I'm sure some people would be interested in going at a certain former Pen for single-handedly ending our streak).  That kind of kills my cred for this thing starting out, but with a Flyers game coming up next week (at Philadelphia, no less), I'm sure that will change.  So what can we look at in the meantime?

FrankD posted a bench clearing brawl in Russia, and - along with the Pens getting Recch'd on Saturday, it made me think about quite possibly one of my favorite fight scenes ever.  This happened back in March of 2004 in the course of less than a minute - game time, that is.  When it was all done, 419 penalty minutes had been handed out.  Here's part one of three.  I'll throw part two up the next time the Penguins don't fight.  That's your punishment.
