UNIONDALE, N.Y. — It wasn’t exactly a shining moment for New York’s finest.

An annual hockey game between teams from the New York Police Department and the Fire Department of New York turned into a bench-clearing brawl Sunday night at Nassau Coliseum.

The brawl at the home of the New York Islanders broke out in the second period as referees tried to break up a fight but within minutes the brawl was on.

There was a 25-minute delay as gloves, sticks and other equipment littered the ice. There were numerous ejections, though there didn’t appear to be serious injuries.

NYPD won the game, 8-5, its first win over FDNY in six years.

Numerous charities benefit from the game, including the New York Police and Fire Widows’ and Children’s Benefit Fund.
