Hockey Ref Drops Gloves on Player

Russian hockey ref fightIn a video that seems straight out of a Yakov Smirnoff, a Russian referee dropped the gloved on a player. After an apparent shove knocks him to the ice, the official pops up, calmly removes his helmet and gear, and takes out the offending player. Members of both teams eventually join the fray, alternately taking shots at each other and trying to break up the fight.
