Gillis violently cross-checks Krupp in the neck. Krupp is very upset and tries to fight Gillis who hides behind the refs. Only penalty to Krupp, minor for unsportsmanlike conduct, for throwing off his gloves. Emotion

After a whistle in the Quebec zone early in the 2nd period, they push and shove and both drop the gloves. But the refs get in between before they can start to fight. Both got minors for unsportsmanlike conduct. Fun

Guy Lafleur was near the end of his magnificent career. He was finishing up in Quebec where he played his junior hockey. Guy had the puck along the boards and made a pass up the ice. LaFleur kind of relaxed feeling like the he was not going to take a hit on the play.

Dean Kennedy was a tough and physical player. He decided to throw a check on Lafleur despite the fact that Guy no longer had the puck. Kennedy skated alongside Lafleur and nailed him with a shoulder-to-shoulder hit. Guy pitched forward and slammed his cheek into the boards. Lafleur suffered a broken cheekbone in the incident.

Kennedy's hit was a dirty one. Guy was not expecting the late hit. He was unable to brace himself for a collision with the boards. I don't think Dean intended on hurting him this badly, but that type of injury can result from an irresponsible hit on an unsuspecting opponent.

Lafleur was one of the most talented players in NHL history. He was a fast skater, he possessed a hard and accurate shot, and he was a brilliant playmaker. Guy was one the greatest junior players in the history of Quebec hockey. He scored over 100 goals in two consecutive seasons.

The Montreal Canadiens scouts wanted him badly. The team made a deal with the lowly California Golden Seals to acquire the draft pick to secure Lafleur's rights. Guy was chosen as the number one overall selection in the 1971 draft. Guy had high expectations. He was seen as the heir-apparent to the great Jean Beliveau.

LaFleur scored over twenty goals his first three years. Despite some initial success in the NHL, he was seen as an underachiever. Beliveau actually had a talk with the young phenom who idolized him as a kid. He explained to Guy the importance of being completely dedicated to his craft. Lafleur followed the advice of his boyhood hero. His career took off the following year.

Lafleur scored over 50 goals and had over 119 points for six consecutive years. He was considered by many to be the best player in the NHL during this span. The Canadiens formed another dynasty and won four consecutive Stanley Cups in the late 1970's. Guy was the most famous member of the team.

Guy's performance slipped to more mortal proportions over the next few years. He retired during the 1984-85 season. Guy was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1988. Despite the honor, he decided he wanted to resume his playing career. Guy played one year in the Big Apple for the Rangers. He played two more years with the Quebec Nordiques before he retired for good at the end of the 1990-91 season.

Lafleur was one of the all-time great offensive forces in NHL history. He was the first player I remember seeing on television as a kid. I remember watching the Bruins play the Canadiens in a game when I was about four or five. I saw Guy flying all over the ice in the center of most of the action. My father told me that he was probably the best hockey player in the world at the time. This was a great guy for me to see in watching my first NHL game on television. He was a living legend.

Quebec's Guy Lafleur dishes off the puck along the boards. A couple seconds later, Buffalo's Dean Kennedy cruises in and delivers a shoulder check from behind. Lafleur was not expecting the late hit and didn't even see Kennedy approaching. Lafleur's face smashes into the glass and he falls to the ice, stunned.

Lafleur was cut up on his head and also suffered a broken cheekbone. Kennedy's hit was definitely a cheap shot, as it was both late and from behind. Perhaps this is why the Nords' Darin Kimble attacked Rick Vaive later in the game.

Behind the play, Kennedy skates up beside LaFleur and checks him into the boards, and LaFleur's face smashes off the glass. LaFleur needed stitches, and also fractured his cheekbone. Emotion

Ken McRae decisive win Fun

Arniel comes to the defense of teammate Rick Vaive but takes some punishment in exchange. The 2 fight amidst a big fracas in front of the Quebec bench. The 2 wrestle early on. They move away from the boards and McRae gets the jersey over Arniel's head. McRae starts to tee off on Arniel which prompts the linesmen to rush in.

Decisive win McRae as he had Arniel at his mercy with the jersey over his head. The linesmen had to intervene on Arniel's behalf.

They tangle along the benches during a melee and decide to go. Short wrestling match until McRae gets Arniel's shirt over his head and unloads 4-5 rights before the refs can break it up.

Draw Fun 
4
This fight was not very entertaining because although both men threw a lot of punches they tied each other up so well that not very many solid punches landed, and it was mainly for that reason that it was a draw because neither really landed a hard shot and they both landed equal amounts here.

Maguire lands a right early that knocks off Kimble's helmet. They do some grappling and each one pokes in a few punches. They do a lot of grappling as they move around the ice and then they each throw several short rapid punches. After they exchange a couple more short rights Maguire looks at the linesmen and it looks like he's tired out so they come in.

Not much of a fight as both players were either grappling or throwing short rights. Neither one really wanted to open up and they both tied each other up too well to be able to throw em effectively. I expected a little more from these guys.

Draw Fun

I didn't think this was a bad fight. It was lengthy and both guys got some effective shots in from time to time. Maguire landed a solid connect and missed a right hand. Kimble landed two average rights and a solid connect.

Kevin missed a few blows and landed a couple of average shots. Darin missed a punch. Maguire landed a decent connect. Kimble landed a decent blow and an average punch. Kevin missed a shot and landed a solid blow.

Darin missed a right and a left. Maguire missed a few punches and landed a couple of average connects. Kimble missed a couple of left hooks, landed three average blows, and missed a punch. He missed a couple of blows. Maguire missed a couple of punches. Darin landed a final blow with average pop.

I rate this fight as a draw. Kimble may have landed a couple more blows. The men were pretty even in terms of the impact of the blows. I don't think Darin had enough of an edge to get the win in a very close and competitive bout.

Not a very good fight, you'd expect more from these two. Lot of grappling in this bout, both were throwing punches as well but neither could land any good ones. I call it a draw.

A scrum was developing between the Nordiques and Sabres. Quebec tough guy Darin Kimble then brutally suckerpunched Buffalo's Rick Vaive from behind, a total blindside attack.

Kimble cruised into the gathering of players and delivered a massive punch with his full weight behind it. Darin's gloved right hand drilled Vaive on the back of his helmeted head, knocking him almost completely out. Vaive fell forward on his face and had to be assisted off the ice.

It was about as bad a blindside attack as Bertuzzi-Moore, but without the career-ending injury. This was a dirty and cowardly move by Kimble, which was surprising, as he was definitely not that type of fighter throughout his career.

As he was escorted off the ice, Kimble looked distinctly unhappy. You get the sense that perhaps Kimble was ordered by his coach to do that. It wouldn't be surprising, since Michel Bergeron was a real scumbag. This is all strictly conjecture on my part, I have no proof of that. It just wouldn't surprise me if that were the case here!

It is also possible that Kimble's cheap shot may have been in retaliation for Dean Kennedy's dirty hit on Guy Lafleur earlier in the game.
