Another mass brawl may truly hurt KHL underdogs

Top KHL squad Avangard managed to finish their home game against league underdogs Vityaz, 3-2, despite a mass brawl.

The incident occurred almost immediately after face-off. The Vityaz players went on the offensive after only six seconds of play.

Avangard's management says the brawl was a pre-planned act against their team.

They have demanded that Vityaz be excluded from the KHL, and also want a lifetime disqualification for the club’s management. In January 2010, a similar brawl occurred during the clubs’ meeting in the Moscow region. Back then, the game was suspended, while Vityaz were considered to have struck the first blow, but avoided serious sanction from the KHL.
