Happy seventh anniversary of “The Brawl”

It was seven years ago today, March 5, 2004. Rob Ray and Donald Brashear dropped the gloves, not knowing that they were in the process of making history. The Philadelphia Flyers and Ottawa Senators engaged in a brawl that resulted in 419 combined penalty minutes, the most in the history of any NHL game. 419 minutes, nearly seven full games of ice time.

Happy seventh anniversary, Philadelphia and Ottawa. You will alway hold a special place in my heart.
