Please, Mr. Linesman, let the players fight!

With special thanks to my new friend Joe Tasca, I read a very amusing story on his site as reported to him through pressconnects.com.

It seems as if Bing-hampton Senators goaltender Ray Emery has had a very shaky life in the AHL. It seems as if the Wilkes-Bare Scranton Penguins are his favorite team to play against. In Wednesdays game, Emery was given a match penalty a 5 minute major for striking WBS player with his blocking pad. It was the final factor to the game as the Pens won 7-3 off two power play goals.

Tasca has featured on his site has the rap sheet on the volitaile netminder.
In December of 2003, Emery skated the length of the ice and pummeled Wilkes-Barre goaltender Andy Chiodo (now the starting goaltender in Pittsburgh) during an all out brawl.
