Goalie fights are always a fun sight to see during their rare occurrence. The fans were treated to one during a recent ECHL game between the Florida Everblades and Savannah Ghost Pirates.

With the game winding down and the score long decided in favor of the Ghost Pirates the fists began to fly between all combatants on the ice. With 2.7 seconds left all players on the ice started fighting. In a rare sight the goalies from each squad decided to get in on the action.

Florida's Cam Johnson and Savannah's Michael McNiven skated toward each other and started throwing punches just outside the Ghost Pirates blueline. The pair both landed a couple good shots before collapsing to the ice in a pile.

The home fans saw their team get beat 5-2 but a small constellation prize would have been seeing the goalies throw down.
