NYC cops and firemen in wild brawl during charity hockey game (VIDEO)

They may not have the playmaking skills of the NHL but,  when it comes to dropping the gloves on the ice, the pros have nothing on New York City's finest and bravest. That fact was apparent when a bench-clearing brawl broke out during a charity hockey game between New York City cops and firefighters on Sunday at Nassau Coliseum.

The wild scene erupted in the second period as referees struggled to control multiple, one-on-one battles. Sticks and gloves littered the ice during the disturbing incident.

It was 3-3 when the second-period violence broke out. The NYPD eventually beat their NYFD rivals 8-5.

The brawl led to a 25-minute delay as equipment was picked up and refs made long lists of penalized and ejected players.

Despite numerous black eyes and bruises, no players appeared to be seriously injured.

And at least there were enough first responders in the house if things got out of hand.

While the goalies just watched the mayhem.
