They were aleready down when the cameras got there. Hudson was probably happy it was over quickly as he was not a fighter, while Curran was an established fighter.

Tom Fergus and Troy Murray get tangled up following a whistle and drop the gloves as they wrestle in tight. Murray gets some separation and throws two rights, landing one that forces Fergus' head up. Fergus lands a right and then Murray misses two rights. Fergus then throws two rights and lands one that knocks off Murray's helmet. Murray gets back in tight and is wrestled to the ice by Fergus. Both guys took their time throwing punches in this one but they both landed. Draw in a bad fight.

Right off a draw following a Toronto Maple Leafs' goal, Lou Franceschetti and Duane Sutter drop their gloves and they're fast to grab onto each other. Franceschetti misses a right just before Sutter misses a right and then Franceschetti lands two light lefts. Franceschetti wrestles Sutter to the boards as Sutter grabs at Franceschetti's helmet but then lands two weak lefts of his own. Franceschetti misses a left and a right while his helmet is removed by Sutter. Franceschetti misses a right and then Sutter throws three lefts, landing one softly as Franceschetti throws two rights and lands one weakly. Franceschetti then lands a right before the linesmen come in and break it up but Franceschetti tries to get to Sutter's helmet and then lands a right with the linesmen between them. Dull scrap between these two middleweights.

Jeremy Roenick has shot in close stopped by Allan Bester and Ed Olcyzk falls on the rebound. Roenick pokes at Olcyzk to try and free the puck so Todd Gill comes in and knocks Roenick over. Dan Vincelette takes exception to the roughness from Gill and drops the gloves after shoving Gill against the boards. Roenick bounces to his feet and grabs Gill who just ducks his head and covers up. Vincelette gets set and misses a right while standing back from Gill. Olczyk tries to grab Vincelette but Keith Brown hauls Olczyk to the ice before he can really get a hold on Vincelette. Vincelette lands three rights as Gill goes down trying to grab onto Vincelette. A linesman then jumps on Vincelette from behind to restrain him and Brown wrestles Olcyzk on top of Gill. An unfair fight because Gill didn't fight back due to being held by Roenick when Vincelette dropped the gloves. Vincelette got free just enough to land a few rights as Gill went down but a linesman quickly broke it up.

This brawl is so long that I'll break in down into several parts. This was one of the best brawls of the 89-90 season and perfect old time hockey before Bettman and Colin Campbell took that away from fans with their stupid rules.

Part 1 Early on
McIntyre and Graham mixed it up as the period came to a close and everyone quickly gets involved. Everyone chooses a partner and there is a lot of wrestling and mixups going on in the corner. Leeman is paired off with Savard and he throws a few punches at him and rips off his jersey before the Hawks get over to help him and everyone gathers around. Andy Van Hellemond the ref tries to separate the 2 while yelling for the staff to open the hallway door to get the players off the ice. But Savard gets up and bumps into the door and closes it! Although everyone is paired off not much has happened and it looks like things will calm down but then Graham comes into the fray and starts throwing punches....

Part 2 More mayhem
Graham comes into the pile and starts throwing punches at Leeman. Everyone instantly starts up again and Andy Van Hellemond is yelling for the staff to open the door so they can get people off the ice. Savard then comes over and punches one of the Leafs who is paired off with a Hawk. Curran and Russell start to fight then as they wrestle and fall to the ice. But they keep throwing punches anyway as they wrestle around on the ice. Savard who has been trying to get away from Van Hellemond finally does and Leeman comes over and they decide to dance....

Part 3 Leeman vs Savard
After an eternity of shadow boxing the 2 finally grab each other and start to fight. Manson who had already been sent off comes back and jumps into them and knocks Kevin Collins down which was the best part of the whole brawl. Manson then throws a few more punches at Leeman as he and Savard go to the ice and one of the other Leafs comes over to grab Manson. Things finally settle down now as the linesmen are able to restore peace.

John McIntyre finishes a check on Cam Russell as the period ends and Russell takes exception. As Russell mixes it up with McIntyre in the corner, more players pile in. Brian Curran goes after Russell as Dirk Graham pulls McInytre away. Graham really wants a piece of McIntyre and drops the gloves, throwing a couple despite both linesmen rushing in to break it up. Meanwhile Dave Manson jumps Curran from behind but just takes him down as Gary Leeman gets paired off with Denis Savard. Dave Reid tries to get to Manson but is pulled away by Greg Gilbert while Tom Kurvers comes in and gets to Manson as he allows Russell and Curran to pair off. Curran immediately wrestles Russell to the ice but then Leeman gets going against Savard. Savard just ducks as Leeman's throwing so Manson tries to get at Leeman. Kurvers is able to get Manson bent over but Manson soon straightens and gets a hold of Leeman. Reid struggles to hold back Gilbert from getting involved as Savard loses his jersey but gets his head up. Leeman just ducks then as Savard gets loose and throws a punch. A linesman grabs Savard since Manson still has a hold of Leeman. One linesman gets McIntyre out of the brawl while the other tries to escort Graham off the ice through the door behind the net. Graham then rushes at Leeman and misses a punch at him, sparking Manson to throw a punch at Leeman too. Savard then gets loose and drops Leeman with a suckerpunch as a linesman is holding Leeman and staying between him and Manson. Suddenly Curran and Russell start wrestling around and Curran gets Russell to the ice. Russell rolls on top of Curran just as Manson tries to dive in on top of Curran but is directed away roughly by a linesman. The linesmen get Savard and Graham to the door but neither leaves the ice. Leeman and Savard then chirp at each other so both Savard and Graham try to get to Leeman. Graham is held back by a linesman and then grabbed by Kurvers but Savard is let free and he proceeds to square off with Leeman. Meanwhile Manson tries to pull Curran out from under Russell and throws some punches at him with the linesman struggling to restrain Manson but eventually pulling Russell off of Curran. Reid keeps Gilbert from interfering with Savard and Leeman who continue to square off for over a minute. Curran tries to get to them but is held back by a linesman but when Leeman and Savard finally come together, Savard only ducks his head and before Leeman can do much, Manson comes flying in, knocking over a linesman while punching at Leeman. Curran is wrestled down by a linesman while Leeman, Manson, and Savard go the ice. Leeman gets on top of Savard and throws a couple while Manson throws a couple at Leeman. Wendel Clark and John Kordic almost go onto the ice but Kordic gets on top of the boards and pulls Clark back when he attempts to leave the bench. Kurvers gets in and grabs Manson as Curran grabs Savard and with everyone on the ice except for Reid and Gilbert, who're still just wrestling around, the brawl ends. Everyone breaks up and goes off but emotions are still running high and it take some time to get the ice cleared for the zamboni. Just a wild scene between these Norris Division rivals. There wasn't too much fighting in it all but it was a long brawl and very eventful. Fun

Very good line brawl with fights all over the ice, while they weren't particularly good fights there were plenty of them, there were also some sucker shots and a star player being involved several times, there's lots of intensity and animosity on display between these two divisional rivals. Sadly though the benches never empty. Fun

Quote from message by DownGoesBrown
"Durno"

In the middle of Leeman and Savard's dance of futility, the camera pans by a young hockey fan wearing a #8 Leafs jersey that reads "Durno". This begs two questions: how bad were the camera angles in Maple Leaf Gardens that a small child could block them, and what the heck is a "Durno"? Stay with me, I'm going somewhere with this.

Since nobody by that name ever played for the Leafs, I'm going to assume it's the kid's name. A few minutes of google research reveals a journeyman minor leaguer named Chris Durno, who at the age of 28 finally made his NHL debut this year by playing two games for the Avalanche. Chris Durno grew up in Scarborough, would have been nine years old when this game was played, and according to this interview he always wore #8 when he was growing up.

You know what? I'm going to go ahead and make the claim that that's future NHLer Chris Durno blocking the camera in the middle of this fight!

(Update: DGB commenter and Durno family friend "JDub" confirms that it is Chris Durno!)

And based on that, I'm establishing the Chris Durno Fan Club, and demanding that Brian Burke sign Chris Durno to play for the Marlies next year. Burke already knows Durno, having once acquired him when he was with the Ducks. And the Hockey News says Durno brings "plenty of physical toughness and intimidation". Just what we need in Toronto!

Who's with me? We want Durno! We want Durno!

John McIntyre bodies Cam Russell in the corner as the period ends but is followed closely through it all by Dirk Graham. Graham wants a piece of McIntyre and drops the gloves after the horn goes and lands a right while getting the jump on McIntyre. The linesmen grab them both as McIntyre drops the gloves and then misses two rights. Graham tries to get free from both the linesmen and McIntyre and misses a right. Both guys try to get loose then but the linesmen pull them apart. Graham landed a right at the outset but the linesmen jumped right in so this was an unfair fight as it continued with both guys throwing afterwards. Graham was really mad during this brawl and went after Gary Leeman later on.

Gary Leeman clear win Fun

Gary Leeman grabs Denis Savard in the brawl and gets him to the ice but when Savard gets back to his feet, Leeman drops the gloves. Leeman lands a right and then Savard wraps his arms around Leeman to get in close quarters. Leeman lands a left and presses Savard to the boards as they wrestle around. Savard gets his gloves off and gets Leeman's helmet off as Leeman misses a left but then gets loose with the right. Leeman lands three out of four rights while Savard just tries to hold Leeman's head down. Leeman backs Savard into the boards but that's where Dave Manson is and Manson grabs hold of Leeman with Tom Kurvers unable to hold Manson away. Leeman just tries to hold Savard's head down but Savard loses his jersey and gets it up, missing a left as Leeman gets bent over by Manson. A linesman comes in to try to break up Leeman and Savard but then Savard misses one last left that puts both him and Leeman on their knees. Savard misses a right after getting up but the linesman grabs Savard and so Leeman gets up but tries nothing more. However both Manson and Dirk Graham go after Leeman once the linesmen pull Savard away. This fight as all Leeman though as Savard just hung on until Manson got a hold of Leeman.

Gary Leeman is taking some chirping from several Chicago Blackhawks players when suddenly Dirk Graham lunges past the linesman holding him to throw a punch at Leeman. Leeman ducks away but Graham's right still lands and then Dave Manson, who's been holding Leeman since his fight with Denis Savard, lands a left. Leeman just tries to get away from them both but then Savard wades through the crowd and gets behind Leeman. Savard then comes underneath with a big left hand that drops Leeman to a knee. Savard skates away immediately but is met by a linesman. Leeman is shaken up but gets to his feet and wants a piece of Savard afterwards. A really brutal cheapshot by Savard, it was a clear suckerpunch and done right after Graham and Manson had gotten punches in on Leeman who was being held by a linesman. Emotion

After Denis Savard's suckerpunch on Gary Leeman, Brian Curran, who's been paired off with Cam Russell since the outset of the brawl, notices and tries to get at Savard. Russell hangs onto Curran and that sets off a fight between the two heavyweights. Curran tries to get loose from Russell as they wrestle around but then Curran puts an arm around Russell's head and tries to trip him up. Russell stays up and attempts to wrestle Curran down but the bigger Curran gets Russell off balance and falls on top of him. Russell misses a right from his back and then Curran lands a right before Russell rolls on top. Dave Manson then dives in after Curran but is pushed away by a linesman as Russell lands a right. Curran manages to work Russell onto his back again but then Manson gets partially up and gets to Curran. The linesman stays with Manson though and wrestles him to the ice while Curran just holds Russell down. However Manson eventually gets away from the linesman enough to jump on top of Curran and tries to pull him off of Russell. Really bad fight. Curran saw Savard's suckerpunch on Leeman but Russell stayed with Curran when he tried to get away. However they only wrestling until they hit the ice and then there was a few punches but still mostly wrestling. Manson tried to jump in and then Curran just tried to hold Russell down. Manson eventually got to Curran but a linesman was there the whole time. Draw in a really bad fight between Curran and Russell.

A linesman tries to get Denis Savard off the ice after his suckerpunch on Gary Leeman but Savard doesn't leave the ice. Dirk Graham is also wrestled into the doorway by a linesman but doesn't go off the ice, trying to get at Leeman as well. Leeman and Savard chirp at each other and despite the linesmen trying to hold the players apart, eventually Savard gets to Leeman and they square off. They square off for an extremely long time as Savard backs away when Leeman tries to grab on initially even though Savard has no jersey on, losing it in their initialy encounter. After over a minute of squaring off, Leeman gets more aggressive and though Savard continues to back up when Leeman tries to grab on, Leeman misses a right and goes balance so Savard rushes in and grabs on with Leeman who misses another right. Savard gets into close quarters as Leeman works Savard's head down. Leeman lands a right but then Dave Manson comes flying in, grabbing at Leeman and knocking over a linesman. Manson steps back afterwards as Brian Curran tries to get in to grab Savard but gets wrestled down by a linesman. Manson misses a couple rights at Leeman while Savard gets to his knees and lands a right. Tom Kurvers then jumps in, getting between Manson and Leeman while on the bench, John Kordic keeps Wendel Clark from going onto the ice.

As far as fights go this is fairly pathetic as the tangle in the corner for a little bit and then after they break up the shadow box for an eternity. What gives this a huge fun rating is what's going on the entire time these guys are stalking each other, with Curran wrestling Russell to the ice and then Manson coming in and leaping over Ron Finn to get at Leeman. When Leeman is down then both Savard and Manson start unloading on Leeman and that's when Clark and Kordic almost come off the bench. Very exciting stuff!

One of the funniest fights i've ever seen. Leeman was giving it to Savard until some Hawk player grabbed Leeman. They got separated but then Savard went looking for Leeman who was being held and didn't see Savard at all and Savard hit him with a huge suckerpunch. Then they eventually square off for round 2, but Savard doesn't want anything to do with Leeman and just keeps back peddling away from Leeman for almost two minutes. Finally they come together and Savard gets bent over and Leeman hits him with an uppercut, that's when Manson comes flying in.

Insanely long square off followed by a weak fight that ends with Dave Manson coming from behind to go after Leeman, narrow win to Leeman for landing the only blow and the best blow.

After Manson and Savard teamed up to pound Leeman, everyone thought the benches would empty, Wendell Clark and John Kordic were ready to jump out there. Dave Manson was severely punished by the NHL for his uncontrollable behavior in this brawl, he was given a TRIPLE GAME MISCONDUCT and received a 13 Game Suspension and this meant that he missed nearly 2 months of NHL games.Reply

I think there were some separate altercations between these two although it seems like they were reviewed as one. They were broken up from their initial altercation for almost a minute but in that time was the suckerpunch. They reengaged some time later and had another go but Dave Manson jumped in on that one before it got going.Reply

Dave Manson decisive win

Manson barges in, leaping past a linesman to grab Leeman and knocking the linesman over. Manson steps back as Brian Curran tries to get in to grab Savard but is wrestled down by another linesman. Manson then grabs at Leeman as he and Savard go to the ice and Manson throws three rights, landing one after going to the ice too with Savard getting up onto his knees and getting a punch off at Leeman too. A linesman then gets between Manson and Leeman while another comes in with Tom Kurvers to grab hold of Manson and restrain him. Wild scene here as Manson came charging from off the ice to jump Leeman in his fight with Savard. It didn't last long but Manson got a few rights off before others got involved and stopped things from escalating further. A dirty move by Manson though, it was a complete jumping of Leeman when he and Savard were engaged in a fight. Wendel Clark and John Kordic almost went over the boards to join in the fray when Manson jumped in but Kordic actually held Clark back from leaving the bench.

Leeman and Savard were going at it, Manson jumped in and tackled the linesman, then he started pummelling Leeman from behind. Clark and Kordic almost jumped off the bench.

Dave Manson is broken up from Brian Curran and escorted off the ice but decides to come back on when Denis Savard and Gary Leeman come together in their second fight. Manson races in and leaps past a linesman who's coming in between Savard and Leeman, but Manson goes right into the linesman, knocking him to the ice while grabbing at Leeman. Manson goes on to throw a few at Leeman as the brawl winds down with everyone winding up on the ice, including Brian Curran, who's wrestled down by another linesman when trying to get in on Savard and Leeman. Manson was given multiple game misconducts as well as a fighting major and later suspended thirteen games by the NHL for his part in this brawl. Fun

Manson pushed linesman Ron Finn aside, earning another automatic three-game suspension (got one two months earlier). But this time, after he was sent off the ice, Manson came back to fight with Gary Leeman. The return to the ice cost Manson another 10 games, extending his second suspension of the season to a total of 13 games. Manson, however, insisted that even though officials had told him to go to the dressing room he had not yet left the ice before he went after Leeman. On Dec. 26, 1989, the NHL announced that Manson would get the additional 10-game suspension. The Blackhawks appealed that decision, but the NHL did not overturn the ruling because videotape of the incident did not conclusively show whether or not Manson had remained on the ice. As a result of the suspension, Manson did not return to action until Chicago's Jan. 27, 1990 game at Hartford.Reply

John Kordic decisive win Fun 
8
I watched this fight four times over and over, and I while I don't disagree with the "clear" verdict everyone else gave it, I do think hb11 was right in saying it could be ruled "decisive." Started out a little even, with Russell landing the first few punches, but then his arm got stuck in his jersey and the side of his head stuck to Kordic's left. Kordic landed a series of left hooks and two uppercut bombs that drew a huge crowd reaction. I was tempted at first viewing to say clear victory, but the more I watched it the more it became clear the linesmen broke this up save Russell from any more punishment - basically acknowledging that he couldn't protect himself any longer.

Russell got off to a good start in the fight. He missed a punch and landed a pretty good right hand. He landed two average blows and a body punch. Kordic missed a couple of punches and landed a couple of average shots. He landed a pretty good left hook.

Cam missed a punch, landed an average right hand, and missed a punch. John landed a couple of average blows and missed a blow. Then, he lowered the boom and landed a good left hook that stunned Russell.

Russell was hurt and Kordic followed up with lots of effective lefts. He landed a solid connect, a pretty good shot, two solid blows, and two pretty good shots. Rambo landed a solid connect and an official intercepted a last attempt.

This was a decisive win for Kordic. Russell had a solid start, but Kordic hurt him with some damaging blows. He was in trouble and Rambo handed him his lunch in this bout.

John Kordic decisive win Fun

At centre ice Cam Russell, recently called up from the minors, and John Kordic drop the gloves, Russell's only fourth game in the NHL. Russell misses two long rights as Kordic leans away but then gets in tight. Kordic then gets his hand going, throwing eleven lefts and landing seven while Russell stands in there and trades openly, throwing eight rights and landing two. They pause briefly and Russell switches hands, landing a left over the top as Kordic leans away again, creating some separation. Kordic lands a good left as Russell misses a left and Russell puts his head down immediately after. Kordic misses two follow up lefts while pulling Russell off balance but then Russell lands an over the top left while Kordic lands another good left underneath. Russell puts his head down trying to get back in tight as Kordic lands seven straight lefts, forcing the linesmen to come in and break it up. Russell didn't hesitate to drop with one of the league's toughest in what had been a very feisty game to that point. Russell stood in there and was throwing them but Kordic had totaly control and was landing much more frequently until the end, when he just took over completely. In the box Kordic was taunting Russell a little bit, though he just ignored it.

Kordic wins this one handily throwing loads of lefts that connect. Russell is active early in the fight but not too effective. Kordic throws the last 6 punches unanswered. Could almost call this decisive.

They started off toe2toe, but then Cam got his right arm stuck in his jersey as Kordic pounded him with a flury of lefts. Huge haymakers and uppers landing at will as the refs came in for the helpless Russell. Clear win Kordic but props to Cam for taking the punishment.

Kordic clearly gains control here and the linesmen break it up to preserve the safety of Russell.

New-kid-on-the-block Cam Russell is taken .... actually driven to school by the veteren John Kordic. Russell at first, does well, landing 2 facial-punches but at the same time, Kordic is landing also and he also picks up steam fast as he mesmerizes the kid with well-aimed, landed uppercuts and overhand punches, so that Russell isn't even able to answer back with swings. The refs then have to intervene, so decisive win for Kordic. Kordic totals 8 facial-punches while Russell totaled 2 facial-punches.

From the footage, Kordic was in total control, landing many of those lefts while Russell tried to put his head down and duck away. Clear win Kordic in a great tussle.

Russell did well for a while and traded punches with Kordic. Kordic took over in the second half and hammered Russell with unanswered lefts and the linesmen had to step in.

Russell lands a couple at the start but Kordic really takes over after that hammering him with a series of hard lefts that brings in the linesmen before Russell is unconscious.

There is no way Russell even sniff's a win in this fight. Kordic smoked him, even waving his hand at Russell after they were seperated as if to say that was a joke. Now when they fought again later in the season, Russell faired far better and got Kordic's jersey over his head. But this was all Kordic.Reply

Iafrate throws about 6 rights to the back of Sutter's helmet, but most of the punches don't seem to connect. Then he takes Sutter down. Sutter while on his back throws one at Iafrate.

A crowd gathers after an Alain Chevrier save and Al Iafrate pairs off with Duane Sutter in the midst of it. Sutter gets a glove into Iafrate's face and then drops the gloves so Iafrate drops the gloves too. Sutter tries to get set but the much bigger Iafrate stands back and throws a flurry of six rights, landing three but only on the helmet as Sutter leans away. Sutter then gets in tight but he's promptly wrestled down by Iafrate. From on the ice, Sutter lands a right up at Iafrate before the linesmen get in and break it up. Win for Iafrate in a short, poor, scrap with Sutter.
