On Nov. 21, 1998, the Bruins outlasted the Capitals 5-4, but the win over their conference rivals was completely overshadowed by the 12 ejections and 270 minutes in penalties that were doled out on the night.
With the B’s taking an early 2-0 lead, a fight broke out halfway through the first period as Boston’s Don Sweeney and Washington’s Craig Berube dropped the gloves. Members of both teams quickly joined in, leading to absolute chaos on the ice.
Soon enough, every single Bruin had found a Capitals dancing partner, and it didn’t take long for the goaltenders, Byron Dafoe and Olaf Kolzig, to join in on the line brawl.
Every player on the ice was ejected, but the B’s were able to pull out the win in overtime.
Check out the massive fight in the video above that one young fan was lucky enough to witness in his first game.
