This was a terrific action bout. McSorley got off to a slow start. He was very patient to the point of getting well behind in the fight before he was able to come on strong. Marty landed a partial connect. Gino missed a punch, landed an average shot, and connected with a solid blow. He landed an average punch, landed a solid connect, and missed a couple of shots.

Gino landed two solid blows and a pretty good right. Odjick missed a left and landed an average right. Marty began a good comeback. He landed a couple of solid shots and a pretty good shot. He missed a couple of punches and landed a pretty good blow. Gino missed a punch and landed a decent left.

Odjick was tiring down the stretch, but he was continuing to slug. He landed a pretty good blow, missed a punch, and landed a pretty good blow. Marty landed a good uppercut and missed a punch. Gino went for the takedown.

This was a good action fight. I rate it as a draw. Odjick got the better of the early part of the fight. McSorley got the better of the tail end. Gino landed more punches and Marty landed the better blows. This all evened out in the end in my mind.

Gino Odjick and Marty McSorley shed the mitts and right away get a grip on each other's jerseys. They grapple a little bit but Odjick stands back and misses a right before McSorley tries to get his right loose. He can't and McSorley then moves in tight as Odjick throws five rights, landing two but losing his helmet in the process. McSorley presses Odjick to the glass while Odjick's right arm comes out of his jersey and then Odjick gets off the boards, throwing six rights and connecting on five. Odjick then ducks out of his jersey completely, losing his shoulder pads as well but when he gets his head up, McSorley lands a right. Odjick throws four rights, connecting with two to the helmet as McSorley tries to get back in tight but can't. McSorley then misses a right and ducks while Odjick throws five rights, landing two more. McSorley then gets his jersey and shoulder pads off as Odjick switches hands, missing a left before McSorley gets his head up. McSorley lands two rights as Odjick ducks while switching hands again, then Odjick gets his head back up to miss a right as McSorley misses a right. McSorley throws four rights and connects on two as Odjick ducks and then misses a right while getting his head up as McSorley misses a right. Odjick switches hands and lands a left while McSorley lands a right, then McSorley misses two rights as Odjick misses two lefts and again switches hands. McSorley connects on a right and then lands a right as Odjick misses a right and McSorley throws four rights, landing two afterwards. Odjick tries to get in tight and then lands a right while McSorley connects with a right. McSorley misses a right as Odjick ducks in tight and tackles McSorley to finish the fight. Both men are cut over their left eye after this fight, though Odjick's is considerably worse than McSorley's. It was a slugfest between two tough heavyweights. Odjick was more active and in control in the early stages, also he got out of his jersey faster than McSorley. Once McSorley got out of his though, he came back strong and took over late. Odjick wasn't able to take McSorley's punches in the late rounds as well as McSorley took Odjick's earlier on. Overall though, it was rather close and I'll call it a draw.

Two old Smythe Division rivals meet up and throw down. Marty McSorley of the Kings and Gino Odjick of the Canucks have a rumble and this is definitely the best fight these two heavyweights would ever have together.

Odjick and McSorley collide near the boards and toss aside the gloves, grabbing on and wrestling hard against the glass. Each man gets in one or two blows within the first few seconds, but then Gino succeeds in losing his sweater and shoulder pads. Odjick is now free and clear to swing away; he works over Marty with a lot of good right hands to the head and face as they struggle and strain mightily against each other.

McSorley gamely hangs in there, taking the punches while trying to free himself of his sweater and pads. Gino's right hands keep bouncing off McSorley's face and helmet, which was partially dislodged on Marty's head. McSorley then gets free of his sweater and equipment, too.

The fight gets really nasty when Odjick and McSorley both have their sweaters off. The two heavyweights are now both swinging hard with some big rights, each guy cranking the other. McSorley gains momentum and starts to take over, drilling the Vancouver enforcer with several strong haymakers.

Odjick comes right back, tagging McSorley with a big left hand that snaps Marty's head around, but the big King defenseman acted as if he didn't even feel it, keeping his own right hand pumping. Marty nails Odjick with a few more stiff rights to the face that make Gino recoil.

Odjick appears to be tired out and hurting a little bit from the punches he took, so he ducks his head down and barrels into McSorley's midsection, tackling him to the ice. The officials hurriedly get in there, pull them apart, and send them to their respective penalty boxes.

McSorley still looks ready and able to fight, while Odjick looks tired out and in some pain. Gino winces as he makes his way to the sin bin. Blood is welling up in a cut between his eyes as he leaves the ice.

It was all Odjick in the first part, then McSorley took over more and more as the battle carried on. McSorley earns the very slight edge for the strong finish and landing better, even though Gino landed a greater number of shots overall.

It was an excellent battle on the part of both of these legendary tough guys!

Awesome fight. It was all Odjick early, his jersey came off and he was pounding away at McSorley. But then McSorley got rid of his own jersey and came back strong in the second half. They just traded bombs with Marty getting in the better shots late in the fight. Solid draw in a great heavyweight tilt. Definitely the best fight between these two.

I was actually at this game as a kid down from Saskatchewan, and - true story - we were sitting in that corner, in seats right behind McGyver (Richard Dean Andersen).
For years afterward, I remembered thinking that was one of the best fights ever, so it is great to finally see video of this. Two big time heavyweights, both in their prime. Lots of heavy, heavy shots from both. These guys earned their paycheques in that one. I think the rights McSorley was landing at the end may have been enough to get the decision, but Odjick was really good early on, though his jersey was really creating havoc.

It takes a bit to get going but once it does boy is it a beauty, some nice toe to toe action and some real bombs landed by both, close fight but Odjick was little busier and landed more early then maintained his lead through the slugfest to earn the hard fought win.

Holy Cow, JimMcKenzie, great clip! That big-screen-TV angle is like watching it live! You can really see how advantageous it is for a fighter to shed jersey, pads, the works.

Good fight, too, as Juha in one of his many alter-egos noted:

The fight was a little below-average, but there was some significant action. Donnelly landed two average rights. Courtnall landed a solid connect. Mike missed a right and a left. He landed a partial connect. Geoff landed a partial connect and missed two blows. The refs stopped the contest.

I rate this as a draw. Donnelly may have landed an extra punch. It looked to me like Courtnall landed the best blow. Both men landed with some effectiveness.

Quick scrap, maybe a couple shots landed by each but nothing big before they tumble to the ice.

Courtnall with a couple of rights near the end to earn the draw before they tumble to the ice.
