The Blues-Hawks beef was super violent even before the St. Patrick’s Day Massacre

In most sports, if players physically attack each other, it’s because there is some level of beef between them. But that’s not the case in hockey. Or… I guess… boxing. Or MMA, or karate, or bullfighting, or a number of other sports, fine, but my point is: Hockey has a lot of fights that aren’t beef-based. So when hockey players do have beef, it’s only going to get even uglier. And when two entire hockey teams have beef? Well, as was the case with St. Louis and Chicago, you get a game so violent it becomes known as The St. Patrick’s Day Massacre.

  • Ok, this was really interesting but as somebody who knows next to nothing about Hockey, why has fighting and violence always been an intrinsic part of the game? I watched a documentary about The Broad Street Bullies and there wasn't much about how good those Flyers were at hockey but a LOT of tales (and footage) of how brutal they were - it's like it was written in the original rules or something.

  • There could potentially be a good Beef History about the Steelers and Bengals of the early 2010s, culminating in that horrible 2015-season Wild Card game (technically in 2016). That game had Pittsburgh coaches pulling the hair of Bengals players, Pac-Man Jones pushing past a ref to try to fight a coach that was taunting him, and of course Burfict's horrifying hit on Antonio Brown. Game eliminated a Cinci team that was surprisingly good and left the Steeler's too beat-up to advance past the eventual Super Bowl Broncos in the next round in a close fight. Or maybe end it with Ryan Shazier attempting a head-on tackle in 2017 that would end his career, as that really seems to be the wake-up call where Cinci and Pitt finally let the beef cool and regress to a normal division rivalry.
