Fists Fly and Chaos Ensues at NYPD vs. NYFD Annual Charity Hockey Game

The annual game between the New York Police Department and New York Fire Department is always a heated affair. The two groups while working hand in hand have a sincere and honest dislike for one and other. However that comes with a mutual respect.

They coexist peacefully 364 days a year, yet they engage in an on-ice war every April.

The two sides became very aggressive at the conclusion of the first period:

Then, during the second period, another altercation started.

On the ice, it’s reasonable to assume that neither team is a huge fan of the other! But what matters most is the incredible work they do outside of it.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
