Yes, you read that right. How charitable.

A bench-clearing brawl broke out during a charity hockey game between New York City cops and firefighters on Sunday in Uniondale, LI.

“It was reminiscent of the old-time Rangers-Flyers games in the mid-’70s,” quipped an NYPD cop who was at the game at the Nassau Coliseum. “I was waiting for [legendary Philadelphia Flyers enforcer] Dave Schultz to come out on the ice.”

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

It was 3-3 when the second-period violence broke out. The NYPD eventually won, 8-5.

Although witnesses said fan loyalties were decidedly even during the game, a YouTube video of the thuggish display captured fans loudly chanting “PD sucks, PD sucks” during the brouhaha.

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

The cop in the stands said he’s been coming to this NYPD-FDNY game for 20 years and had never seen a bench-clearing, cop-firefighter brawl before.

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