Jeff Deslauriers, John Gibson square off in AHL goalie fight

We just missed out on a goalie fight in the NHL on Wednesday, but we did get one on Friday in the AHL.

On Wednesday night Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury was stopped by the officials in his quest to take part in a goalie fight with Montreal's Peter Budaj.

On Friday, the goaltender for Pittsburgh's AHL team, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton's Jeff Deslauriers, managed to make up for it when he squared off in a bout with John Gibson (who, oddly enough, is from Pittsburgh) of the Norfolk Admirals.

The goalie fun starts around the 1:30 mark.

Norfolk would go on to win the game, 4-1.
