RPI beats Union, donneybrook ensues

Things got real ugly, real fast last night in Albany, where RPI upset Union 2-1 at the Times Union Center. Player brawls erupt after the final horn, and then the coaching staffs got into it. Judge the video for yourself, but it sure looks like Union coach Rick Bennett may be looking at a lengthy suspension. No excuses for anyone involved in this, but Bennett's Berserker act is just plain ugly.

EDIT: Union has suspended Bennett for two games. The ECAC may add to that.

Here's what media in the building had to say:
