Video showing Ice Hockey goalie knocking lumps out of opposite number goes viral

A huge brawl during the game between the Philadelphia Flyers and the Washington Capitals on Friday night has gone viral.

Flyers goalie Ray Emery was the main culprit after a sustained attack on his opposite number Braden Holtby.

Emery, nicknamed "Sugar Ray" for his reputation as a fighter, sprinted the length of the ice to pick a fight with Caps goalie Braden Holtby.

Such was the ferocity of the attack that NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman has said that there may be a rule change to place greater sanctions on such acts of violence.
