More on the story of the fight that took place after the Winter Classic in front of Geno's.

That fight video Enrico posted Tuesday night, featuring a blurry but nasty flurry of punches exchanged between Flyers fans and Rangers fans outside of Geno’s Steaks in South Philly, has been making the rounds, drawing plenty of feedback at every landing. Broad Street Hockey ran a post on it Wednesday, calling out those involved with some strong criticism.

BSH then notified the Philly police, who were looking into the fight, which was reported on by several news sites as well.
