Painful Sports Video: NHL Game Has Three Fights in First Four Seconds of Fame – Boston v. Dallas

That’s three fights in the first four seconds and a goal within the first minute. And the NHL (which put out this video) seems proud of this “record” in the game? Yes, we understand that hockey purists argue that this is “only part of the game, ” but with attendance continuing a downward trend this season, it might be time to rethink some of the “traditions” of hockey that might actually be driving away new fans . . . especially families and women. Sure, you can argue that fighting is what makes hockey, hockey, but ultimately, the question might be “Do you want a ‘pure’ sport or a dead sport?” At this rate, it looks like the NHL prefers pure.
