The Arizona and Arizona State hockey teams took the rivalry to a new level Sunday, with a fight between starting goaltenders. 

Wildcats goalie Austin Wilson and Sun Devils netminder Ryland Pashovitz hooked up near center ice for the rare event. Each will face a mandatory one game suspension.

"I know that's fun for the fans," said Wildcat coach Chad Berman. "It gets everyone excited. We're focused on bringing a championship to Tucson. That stuff is not conducive to that. Hopefully, we can make the city proud when we go to Columbus for the National Tournament."

Number 16 Arizona (23-10-2) beat ASU 6-1.
