Union and RPI Line Brawl

Union has given their head coach Rick Bennet a two-game suspension and I wouldn't be surprised if it's longer after this is all sorted out. Old time hockey at the Mayor's Cup Game. Here's what I want to know, why are the players from RPI coming off of the bench while there's a melee going on?
USCHO.COM --- ECAC Hockey officials are looking into the series of on-ice incidents at the end of Saturday’s Rensselaer-Union game in Albany, N.Y., one of which involved the head coaches getting in a heated dispute.

Videos showed that shoving started as soon as the Engineers won a last-second faceoff in its zone to seal a 2-1 victory over the third-ranked Dutchmen and escalated as Rensselaer players came off their bench to celebrate.

Union captain Mat Bodie is seen delivering a high cross-check to Rensselaer’s Brock Higgs after the faceoff, and other players assemble to create a mass of bodies.
