L.A. Kings prove fights are forever

August 26, 2010 | 12:20 pm

The Kings this summer have proven they haven't forgotten the past or what makes so many hockey fans stand and cheer. Fights.

The Fight Club is a new online diversion that features videos of historic (or at least memorable) Kings' drop-the-gloves battles.

Of course, Marty McSorley is there (see video above) -- maybe the best on-ice fighter the Kings have had.

Jay Miller is on the list too.

Miller first became known as an enforcer in the 1985-86 season while playing for the Boston Bruins. That season he collected 178 penalty minutes in only 46 games. He outdid himself two seasons later when he had 304 penalty minutes in only 78 games. In January 1989 the Kings traded for him.

Miller retired after the 1991-92 season but racked up 865 penalty minutes in four seasons with the Kings.
