Our favorite video today comes from a weekend of hockey mayhem out east, when the end of the RPI-Union rivalry game ended in a benches-clearing brawl.

Everyone enjoys a good hockey fight, but when college players start removing their helmets and the head coaches race towards each other on the ice (wearing sneakers) it goes to an entirely new level. Here's the video.

Deadspin recounted the brawl, which began after an RPI player cross-checked a Union player in the neck. Punches, body slams and wrestling followed.

As Huffington Post notes, the fighting overshadowed the fact that RPI pulled off a pretty massive upset, beating third-ranked Union, 2-1.
