Tales of the Tape: Goalie fight!

Ty Conklin is a pretty popular guy around Pittsburgh right now.  Curious, I went through the massive archive of and I found a doozy.

Conklin has had one fight in the NHL on February 11, 2004 when he was playing for the Edmonton Oilers.  One of seven fights that game (one featuring past and present teammate Georges Laraque), Conklin came together with Thrashers goalie Pasi Nurminen and the two got to business.  A goalie fight is one of the bigger spectacles of hockey fights, and this was a good one.  Conklin took the victory on this one with some solid uppercuts and the classic jersey-over-the-head pull.  

Conklin's fight starts at about the 1:20 mark in the video.

Neither Sabourin or Fleury have fought (to my knowledge) - nor has former backup Jocelyn Thibault.  If you see a goalie fight during a game, remember that you are seeing something special.  And if you're really lucky, you might just see the ridiculous grin that last appeared during the entirety of Ottawa goalie Ray Emery's fight(s) last year.
