They say there’s no crying in baseball, and apparently there’s none in women’s hockey either. Just like the men do, women on the Connecticut Whale and New York Riveters of the National Women’s Hockey League got into an all out brawl on the ice.
The Whale were blowing out the Riveters 5-0 when the goalie for the Riveters’ got decked, and the Whale player guilty of the hit subsequently got put on their back as well. It didn’t take long before the entire roster for both teams started throwing hands.
There are four teams in the National Women’s Hockey League, all located within the northeastern United States.
