    Now this was epic, Good Friday 1984, Quebec Nordiques vs Montreal Canadiens, the rivalry to end all rivalries. Those two cities have loathed each other for 400 years now.

    Best part of this scrap, it starts at the end of the period, goes on for a while, finally gets broken up and the players go to the dressing rooms. Come back out after the intermission... everyone gets right back on the ice and back into fighting! Even the Habs-Flyers bench-clearer in... 1986? when Roy gave it to Hextall wasn't as good.

    And now here's the thing though. Everyone will say omg hockey thuggery violent blabla but they don't know what they are talking about. Nowadays you see much dirtier play much more often, and skilled players getting targetted, like the multiple headshots Crosby's got leading to all the concussion problems he had... because the players know they'll get away with it? What's losing a few days' pay at worst when you're making 3 million a year? That's not punishment. Back before they brought in the instigator rule you very seldom saw dirty play like that, because you knew, if I touch Gretzky, Semenko is gonna come smash my head in. So one thought twice about it.

    It did occasionally get out of hand like above but not often. And it /was/ fun to watch. An elbow to the head, or a leg taking a guy's knee out, is decidedly the opposite of fun to watch.

    So nice to have a fellow Canuck and hockey fan on here after all these years.....plus someone who enjoys the rough stuff like me......

    have I mentioned that I love you?

    oh and by the way, the only time I saw Hextall lose a fight was vs. Potvin when he was getting old..... he certainly didn't lose to Roy during the '87 pre-game brawl

    Need to bring 1v1 fights into more sports, especially field sports. Would solve a lot of the bullshit in most of them.

    What are the rules with regards to 1v1 fights in Ice Hockey? Do both players get 'sin binned' following the fight?

    Yes. Fighting carries an automatic 5 minute penalty. However since they offset each other, neither teams has to play a man short - but neither penalized player comes out of the penalty box until the next stoppage in play.

    Also, if one guy is deemed to start the fight, he will be assessed a separate 2 minute penalty for "instigating" which also carries a 10-minute misconduct penalty (however the team doesn't play a man down for that penalty either.... it simply a way to punish the player)

    btw, back in the old days, you didn't get the 10 minute penalty for instigating..... and that let the players police themselves on the ice.... if one of your guys was taken advantage of, you could go deal with the offender and simply serve the extra 2 minutes..... now with the 10 minute misconduct penalty being automatic, players are much more hesitant, and as a result, there are more dirty hits and stick fouls than there used to be.... players aren't afraid of retribution like they used to be.
