Jagr fight video from Russia

Mickey and Minnie Mouse were getting a divorce. The judge says to Mickey, 'You say here that your wife is crazy? I don't think that's enough reason for a divorce,' and Mickey replied, 'I didn't say she was crazy. I said she was fucking Goofy!'
Alexei Yashin (79, Lokomotiv) and Jaromir Jagr (68, Avangard)

This is a video clip from last season that I found on the Metallurg Magnitogorsk web site. It's from a late-season game between Lokomotiv Yaroslavl and Avangard Omsk that was won by Lokomotiv, 2-1, on a goal by Alexei Yashin.

The video starts with some rough stuff behind the Yaroslavl net between Jaromir Jagr of Omsk (#68) and the Lokomotiv team captain, Dmitri Krasotkin (#44). Jagr and Krasotkin wrestle each other to the ice-- actually, it looks like Jagr tries to throw Krasotkin down, but then slips and falls himself-- and then all hell breaks loose. All of the players on the benches and on the ice get involved; you'll even see the two starting goalies, Marc Lamothe and Norm Maracle, dancing with each other. A league-record 322 minutes in penalties were handed out in this game between the two teams, led by 33 minutes for Andrei Nazarov, who can be seen in the video wearing #44 for Avangard (dark jerseys). Jagr and Krasotkin each received 27 penalty minutes.

If you click on the link below, the video (from Russian TV, with sound!) should start right up. If it doesn't, you can jab at the "play" button on the viewer.
