Another good example of how goalies were rarely if ever penalized for fighting back in those days. Several papers reported these two fighting at center ice during the Krake fight. Several pictures exist of Al Smith jumping into the Lonsberry -McCreary fight during a Penguins-Kings regular season game a few weeks later and clearly throwing punches at Ross Lonsberry while Kings Bill Flett started slugging Smith. Even so, Smith just didn't receive any penalties. Al Smith and his antics are largely unknown. Wonder if the leaving the crease fines and eventually the minors for leaving the crease were driven by Al Smith's theatrics.Reply
