Hockey can be a brutal game, none more so when players down gloves and let fists fly.

The brutality was on full show during Saturday's game between the Wild and the Philadelphia Flyers at the Xcel Energy Center, as Marcus Foligno got into a scrap.

The experienced left wing went toe-to-toe with the Flyers' Joel Farabee and ran out the comfortable victor as he landed several clean punches.

But the savagery on display left one spectator shocked, with footage from the fight showing a young girl with her jaw on the floor in the front row.

The girl next to her meanwhile appears to have her hand to her mouth, albeit is also smiling.

The Wild ran out 4-1 winners. You can read our game report here.
