'Wheel of Fortune' host doesn't approve of Caps-Flyers brawl (VIDEO)

It was already one-sided on the scoreboard, so one goalie found a way to even it up when the Philadelphia Flyers and Washington Capitals engaged in a full line brawl that included both goaltenders dropping the gloves.

The whole thing started when Wayne Simmonds turned into a human wrecking ball the next shift after Washington scored to make it 7-0. He and Tom Wilson dropped the gloves. Then a few other players squared off, then Flyers goaltender Ray Emery made a beeline for Capitals goalie Braden Holtby, who appeared to have no interest in dropping the gloves.

It didn't matter. Emery wouldn't take no for an answer. The two goalies squared off and it turned in to a down-and-dirty street brawl. If you didn't know, Emery's not new to this. He had been in two previous fights and is known as an exceptional scrapper among goalies.

Even if Flyers fans ended up getting something for their money, "Wheel of Fortune" host Pat Sajak sounded disturbed by the melee and tweeted: "Love hockey, but Flyers are part of reason it remains a niche sport. Shameful tonight (including Philly radio team.)"

I'd like to buy a central incisor, Pat.
