Dane Byers meltdown following AHL fight

During Saturday's American Hockey League game between the Bridgeport Sound Tigers and Springfield Falcons, Bridgeport's Michael Haley squared off in a fight with Springfield's Dane Byers. Given their track records as tough guys and fighters, that was not much of a surprise.

What happened after the fight, however, kind of was.

Byers basically went off the deep end in his penalty box, threw his stick, left the box, started to scream at Haley in his box, and was sent off the ice to the locker room, but not before he started to yell at Trevor Gillies on the Bridgeport bench and took it upon himself to break another hockey stick in the tunnel and throw whatever remained of it.



Bridgeport ended up winning the game, 4-3, and managed to hold off a late Sprinfield rally as the Falcons scored three goals in the third period.

Wow, did Byers really think that nobody would come after him?  When you basically board a smaller player, someone is going to step in and stick up for the one slammed.  Either you accept the consequences for making the hit, or don't make the play.
