Gord Kluzak narrow win Fun 
4
Dave Brown's first NHL fight came against Gord Kluzak in the 1982-1983 season. Brown only played 2 games that year as he spent the season in the minors. However in the fight with Kluzak, Brown did an excellent job as he hammered the Boston defenseman and put some hurt on him. Kluzak was embarrassed to lose a fight so decisively against a rookie who hadn't even fought in the NHL yet. Now a year and three days later to the day of their first fight, Kluzak is able to have a rematch with Brown. Kluzak wants a piece of him to avenge his previous defeat and to save face.

The camera misses the start of the action. When it resumes the two are going at it in front of the penalty boxes and both are slugging away. Brown misses with three lefts. Kluzak lands two rights, the second punch knocking off Brown's helmet. He misses with a blow but scores with the next right as Brown rushes him up against the boards. Kluzak gets the jersey up over Brown's head and he lands one more right. Brown pins Kluzak against the boards and the two men wrestle. The linesmen moved in to stop it.

The young Kluzak opted for a risky strategy against Dave Brown as he traded punches with him freely. However in this particular instance, it paid off. Kluzak landed the only blows while Brown failed to land anything substantial which resulted in Kluzak winning the fight. It is worth noting that Brown was in his first full NHL season so he wasn't quite the fearsome force that he would later become. That is not to take anything away from Kluzak's performance though. Kluzak had just turned 20 years old eleven days prior to this scrap and he was only playing in his second full season himself.

Brown would go on to become one of the all time greats as far as fighters are considered. He was far from a goon though as the big man could also play the game of hockey (his career high of goals was 12 and he scored a career high 17 points twice). By his second season, it was clear that Dave had become one of the premier heavyweights in the league. Brown remained one of the top guns in the league up until the early 1990s when he got older and his skills began to decline.

Kluzak had a lot of potential but sadly his career was cut short by severe knee problems.
Early in his 3rd season, he badly tore his knee after a collision during a game which resulted in reconstructive surgery. Kluzak would injure it again later on and would be forced to retire by the age of 27. It's a shame because he was a talented defenseman (drafted 1st overall in 1982) who would also fight with some of the toughest men in the NHL. In addition to his two fights with Brown, Kluzak also tangled with Bob Probert, Larry Playfair twice, Chris Nilan, Jim Kyte, and Dave Richter in his brief career.

Luciano's got it exactly opposite. By the time the camera gets there it's Kluzak who is winning, but the commentators said that Brown had landed several, and there's evidence of it as Kluzak is bleeding right between the eyes.

Anyway, when the camera does get there Brown is stiff arming Kluzak backwards, and Kluzak is punching him despite falling back against the boards. Kluzak does a classic jersey over the head move as he pulls the front of the jersey right up over Brown's face and tucks it behind his head.

I'm not gonna call a winner because I didn't see what Brown did, but Kluzak landed a few at the end and finished with the jersey over head move.

Gord Kluzak narrow win Fun

The fight appeared to be in progress as the cameras arrived. Brown landed a decent left and missed a couple of punches. Dave was charging Kluzak and Gord was able to connect with some effective punches despite being back on his heels and against the boards.

Kluzak missed a punch, landed a solid connect, and landed a couple of average blows. He landed a weak partial connect as the jersey came over Brown's eyes. The refs stepped in to stop the fight.

I rate this as a narrow win for Kluzak. He landed a few effective blows and Brown only landed a partial connect in the footage I saw. I did not hear the announcers claim that Dave landed any big shots. I am not sure that this was credible information and I see no reason to deny Gord the win. It certainly looked like he earned it with his fists.

Thomas Eriksson scores and as the teams get set for the next faceoff, Dave Brown and Gord Kluzak drop the gloves. Kluzak goes with rights while Brown goes with lefts and drives Kluzak backward into the boards. Kluzak misses a right and gets his hand into Brown's face to dislodge his helmet as Brown misses a left. Brown then misses a left and loses his hold of Kluzak while Kluzak lands a right. Kluzak then lands a right that knocks Brown's helmet off as Brown misses a left. Kluzak lands a follow up right while Brown just grabs back onto Kluzak and pushes him right off the ice on top of the boards. Kluzak misses a right and then gets his footing back before landing a right and lifting the jersey over Brown's head. Kluzak wrestles Brown partially over the boards and they just hold each other there until the linesmen get in and pry them apart. After the fight, Kluzak has a small cut on the bridge of his nose. They were both throwing them but Brown didn't land any of his lefts while Kluzak definitely landed a few rights and was effective with them. However it didn't last long and turned into just wrestling late.

They start throwing behind the play and Brown lands one early but Kluzak comes back with a nice one of his own. Kluzak wrestles Brown up onto the bench and they just hang on the bench for about 8 seconds not throwing anything just dangling there until the refs come in.

Glen Cochrane decisive win Fun 
5
Hillier deserves credit for taking on one of the toughest heavyweights of the era in Glen Cochrane. He demonstrated that he was not a very good fighter. As in the bout with Torrie Robertson, Hillier did not get close to landing a punch to the head. He landed a shot on Glen's shoulder and a couple to the body. This type of attack was going to do nothing to keep Cochrane at bay.

Cochrane landed a decent right, a couple of partial connects, and a good uppercut. He followed up by landing a decent right and a solid right. Hillier went down from the cumulative effect of the blows. Glen was about to dish out more punishment, but the zebras were merciful and stopped the mismatch.

I rate this as a decisive win for Cochrane. He steamrolled Hillier and handled him with ease. Randy was fortunate that the refs rescued him. This was a big mismatch and he could have gotten hurt if the referees were not so quick to step in once they sensed he was in trouble.

Not long after the Dave Brown and Gord Kluzak fight, another fight gets going, between Glen Cochrane and Randy Hillier. They square off and Hillier misses a right as they get a hold with the left. Cochrane throws two rights and lands one, then connects with a right while Hillier misses a right. Hillier misses two rights as Cochrane misses two rights and Hillier almost falls afterwards. Hillier works on steadying himself but ends up falling to the ice while Cochrane lands two rights. Cochrane falls on top of Hillier and lands two rights as the linesmen rush in to break it up. The win goes to Cochrane for landing the only punches of the fight but nothing landed well until after they went down. Hillier had was more conservative throughout and ended up with balance issues at the end, which brought about the fight's conclusion.

Cochrane takes a run at Tom Fergus and Hillier moves in to his teamates aid. They drop em and square up, Hillier is in a backpedal but Cochrane catches up to him and lands a left to the ear and then grabs hold with his left and goes with a right to the side of Hilliers head, Hillier comes back with a right that misses and then a bodyshot that lands, Cochrane then pushes Hillier backwards and lands a right to the back of his head and the another grazing right as Hillier falls down with Cochrane landing on top. Cochrane tries to throw one while they are down but the linesmen are there quickly to stop him and the fight is done.

All Cochrane in this one.

Clarke and Pederson start shoving and everyone moves in, Stanley circles around the scrum and finds Blum, they shove a bit and decide to go. Stanley gets going first with the lefts landing one then switches to righty and lands a couple to the side of Blums head one landing clean to the cheek, Blum then grabs hold in a bearhug and Stanley throws a right to the body and a right to the head that misses, Blum then gets a judo style takedown landing on top and the linesmen jump in.

Easy win for Stanley who landed one nice one and couple others along the way.

Daryl Stanley was a good NHL heavyweight. John Blum was a second tier fighter who was acquired by the Bruins in a trade with the Edmonton Oilers. Stanley was the more accomplished fighter and was the favorite going into the bout.

Stanley shoved Blum and the two dropped the gloves. John landed a partial connect with a right hand. John missed with a left hand and he grabbed Stanley in a headlock with his left arm. Daryl missed with a right. He landed a decent left hand.

Stanley started getting right hands off. He landed a pretty good blow. He missed a punch. He landed a solid blow. Blum appeared to miss with a right hand. He was wrestling and trying to tie Daryl up. Blum often employed a conservative fight plan and this scrap was typical for him. Stanley continued to fire away with rights. He landed two more decent right hands. Blum went for the takedown and this ended the bout.

I rate this as a clear win for Stanley. Blum fought very conservatively and did very little offensively. Daryl landed a couple of solid blows and a few decent blows. He did land a couple of quality shots and I think the win is clear rather than narrow.

Brent Pederson and Bobby Clarke get their sticks tangled up while taking a faceoff but the linesman doesn't drop the puck and ejects both players from the draw. Clarke uses his stick to shove Pederson's away and that draws a crowd as Clarke backs off after that. The linesmen keep Pederson and Clark away from each other but Daryl Stanley pairs off with John Blum. Stanley gives Blum a shove and they drop the gloves. They grab on, keeping some space between them, and Stanley misses four straight lefts. Stanley goes to the right as Blum tries to get in closer on Stanley. Stanley throws four rights and lands two on the helmet. They wrestle into the boards and Stanley misses two rights before being wrestled down by Blum. With Blum on top, the linesmen come in with Blum missing a right. The third fight in less than a minute and it was the worst of them. Just a poor fight without either getting much going Blum just got in closer as Stanley threw punches but didn't land anything effectively. Then they wrestled on the boards with Stanley missing a couple before being wrestled down by Blum, where he threw his only punch of the fight. Stanley was more active but he didn't get much in on the really conservative Blum. Slight edge to Stanley.

The two are lined up on a faceoff, off the drop they come together and after a few seconds drop the gloves, O'Reilly dives in and eats a huge right to the jaw but continues forward and grabs Cochrane just as Jim Nill jumps in followed by many other players.

Have to give the dec. to Cochrane based on the big right but would call it unfair due to Nill coming in so quickly.

Cochrane and O'Reilly squared off in what could have been a good action fight. Glen landed a good right hand. Terry missed with a couple of quick lefts. Jim Nill interfered right away as the third man in. I rate this as a narrow win for Cochrane based on the pretty good right he landed at the onset of the bout. Nill's intervention denied O'Reilly the chance of getting back in the fight.

Terry had a bad shoulder going into this game. This may be why Nill jumped in so quickly. He may have figured that Cochrane could do some damage on an O'Reilly that was less than 100 percent.

Glen Cochrane and Terry O'Reilly mix it up after lining up for a faceoff next to each other. They get some lumber on the ice and the stickwork quickly escalates into a fight. They grab onto each other's jerseys and Cochrane lands a right just before O'Reilly misses a left. Jim Nill then comes charging in and jumps Cochrane. Cochrane puts his head down as his jersey starts to come up and he, Nill, and O'Reilly all go down to the ice. Everybody else on the ice comes in too and a minor scrum occurs. The linesmen are in on O'Reilly and Cochrane, splitting them up as they're on the ice in the midst of the crowd. Unfair fight since Nill jumped Cochrane right after the fight began.

Right off the draw Brown heads for Curran who gives Brown a gloved slap to the face and away they go. Brown quickly grabs Curran and throws a left that grazes Currans face and then a left that misses, Curran comes back with a right that misses and gets him off balance and in close on Brown, Brown throws a couple lefts catching only pads and Curran takes him down landing on top.

Brown landed the only punch in a very quick uneventful fight which is not enough to score a win.

Dave Brown approaches Brian Curran right after a faceoff to initiate a fight. Curran doesn't look at Brown but drops the gloves anyways and tries to grab Brown while Brown drops the gloves. Brown avoids Curran's attempt but they each grab on afterwards. Brown misses a left wide but then lands a left as Curran misses a right low but struggles to keep his balance and maintain a hold of Brown. Brown then misses a left and after Curran misses a right wide, Brown misses a left wide which brings him in close with Curran and causes Brown's helmet to come off. They wrestle about briefly and then Curran lands a right as Brown misses a left. Curran misses a right while Brown loses his footing completely and falls right onto his back. Curran comes down on top of Brown and the linesmen are there fast to split them apart. A short scrap between two big heavyweights that never got going. Draw since they each landed a single punch.

Two big guys of equal physical stature go at it here. Dave Brown goes right up to Brian Curran after the puck is dropped. Curran is willing so they both shed the mitts and go at it. Brown lands a left immediately and misses with two more blows. Curran grazes Brown with a right and Brown's helmet falls off as he hits Curran in the back of the head. They get in tight and both men miss with a punch. They start to lose their balance but Curran does get a short punch in right before they tumble to the ice.

Both men landed an equal amount of punches so I will score this fight a draw.

Brian Curran and Dave Brown were two big enforcers in the 1980's. Curran shoved Brown and the two dropped the gloves. Both guys threw a couple of quick punches. Brown appeared to land a couple of decent blows. Curran may have landed a partial connect or two.

The fight was very brief and Curran hauled Brown down to the ice. Neither guy was really able to get much going offensively and the bout appeared to be a draw. Both men were disappointed with the result of this scrap. They had a rematch later in the game and Brown was able to earn the win in that fight.

The Spectrum crowd cheers as Philadelphia Flyers' Head Coach, Bob McCammon sends Daryl Stanley, Dave Brown, and Glen Cochrane out for a faceoff late in the game. Terry O'Reilly is on the ice and lines up with Cochrane for the faceoff but before the puck is dropped, O'Reilly goes at Cochrane and the gloves drop. Brown looks right to O'Reilly but is then met by Brian Curran as he charges in. O'Reilly wrestles Cochrane to the ice fast while Curran and Brown exchange some punches at first, wrestle around a little bit, and then Brown takes Curran to the ice. The linesmen break up O'Reilly and Cochrane so Curran and Brown are able to get up and continue fighting. Brown jerseys Curran and gets him down a couple times while throwing some punches. Curran grabs Brown's hair while trying to throw back and wrestles Brown into the glass. They tire out and a linesman leaves the other fight to break up Brown and Curran but then Brown throws a few over the linesman. Curran doesn't like it and gestures to Brown as they're taken off the ice. Fun

O'Reilly and Cochrane fell down almost immediately. O'Reilly landed on top of Cochrane and threw two left punches at Cochrane. After that they just lay there, almost motionless. O'Reilly who was nursing a sore shoulder didn't seem riled up at all, the same goes for Cochrane. Normally these two guys were pretty wild when they fought, now they didn't do anything for over a minute.

Philadelphia was trying to send a message by sending out the "heavyweight division" in the words of Boston announcer Fred Cusick. Glen Cochrane, Dave Brown, and Daryl Stanley were about as formidable a trio as anywhere in the NHL.

Gord Kluzak remembered that the Flyers had called up "every goon in the organization" for this game. He said that O'Reilly had a shoulder injury going in to the game. Terry decided to engage Cochrane in close and tackled him quickly. O'Reilly wanted to neutralize Glen and he tackled Cochrane, throwing a couple of quick lefts. Terry landed one marginal blow and missed with the other. O'Reilly just held on to Cochrane the rest of the way while Brian Curran and Dave Brown had a good action bout.

I rate this as a draw. O'Reilly went for the quick takedown. He was not looking to slug it out with Cochrane. He grabbed Glen in a preemptive strike to keep him from possibly going after a teammate. Terry's one connect was inconsequential and a draw is the correct call here.

The Philadelphia Flyers send out Daryl Stanley, Glen Cochrane, and Dave Brown for a faceoff. As the players get set for the faceoff, Terry O'Reilly goes right after Cochrane and they drop the gloves. They get in tight and wrestle to the ice with O'Reilly going down on top. Meanwhile, Brian Curran goes right after Brown and they drop their gloves. O'Reilly lands three weak lefts before the linesmen come in. O'Reilly and Cochrane stay down on the ice with each other and after a long time, they are separated. No effective punches were landed here, just a few soft ones from O'Reilly after they wrestled to the ice.

Dave Brown narrow win Fun

Curran and Brown decided to go at it again after the unfulfilling first bout. They dropped the gloves right after Glen Cochrane and Terry O'Reilly began to skirmish. Brown got off to a good start in the bout. He landed a solid left hand to start the scoring. Curran missed with a couple of right hands. Dave continued to pump away with left hands.

Brown missed with a punch and landed three consecutive solid lefts. Curran landed a couple of solid counter rights and he missed a follow up punch. The two started to wrestle. Brian missed a right hand before the men lost their balance and fell to the ice.

The men got to their feet. Curran landed a pretty good right and missed a blow. Brown landed a partial connect and started to tug down on Curran's jersey. Brian's jersey went up over his head and Dave tried to take advantage of the situation. Brown threw five blows and landed two or three partial connects.

Curran threw a couple of rights while blinded. He landed a partial connect and missed a blow. He grabbed a chunk of Brown's hair and the two got into tight quarters along the boards. Curran shoved a forearm in Dave's face and the two wrestled until the refs stepped in. Both guys threw blows as the refs were pulling them apart, but nothing of significance appeared to land.

I rate this as a narrow win for Brown. Dave landed more punches. He landed some solid blows early in the fight. Curran landed a few solid connects of his own. Brian was competitive in the bout and was able to hang in there. However, Brown landed a few more shots and deserves the win.

Dave Brown clear win Fun

The Philadelphia Flyers put out a lot of muscle for a faceoff late in the game against the equally tough Boston Bruins. Philly puts out rookie tough guy Dave Brown, wild defenseman Glen Cochrane, and heavyweight Daryl Stanley. Boston has their old veteran power forward Terry O'Reilly on the ice as well as rookie defenseman Brian Curran who is no stranger to fighting. Sure enough, right off the faceoff O'Reilly and Cochrane get into it but they just tumble to the ice right away.

Meanwhile Brian Curran decides he wants a rematch with Dave Brown after their disappointing fight earlier in the game. Curran charges at Brown who is ready for him. Curran gets in trouble once he comes together with Brown. The Bruin gets a right in but stumbles and puts himself in a vulnerable position. Brown capitalizes on it, hitting Curran with three lefts before he regains his footing. Curran answers with two rights but Brown keeps punching away, tagging Curran with three more blows. The two wrestle and fall to the ice.

Ordinarily that would have been the end of the fight. However the officials are preoccupied with getting O'Reilly and Cochrane separated. Therefore these two men are free to continue fighting. The referee comes over but they get back up and keep going. Brown lands two lefts on a ducking Curran who falls to the ice again. Curran gets up but has the jersey pulled over his head as he loses his helmet. Brown hits him with two lefts. Brown keeps the southpaw going, hitting Curran three more times. Curran lands a blind right and misses with a second punch.

The two men make their way behind the Philadelphia net. They grapple up against the boards. Curran gets a left in. The two combatants are beginning to tire out as one linesman comes over to monitor them along with the referee. The grappling continues for quite some time. The camera pans away to the other fight and when it comes back, the one linesman and the referee are about to move in on Brown and Curran. Just as they start to come in, Brown cheaply throws three uppercuts at Curran. Curran hits Brown back with a right before the two men are broken apart.

Entertaining rematch between the two and this was certainly an improvement on their first fight of the game. However this was quite one-sided as Brown was in control throughout the altercation. He connected with most of the blows and had an easy time with Curran. The Colonel was a willing fighter but he was simply not in the same class as Brown even at this early stage of their careers. Brown won this battle between the two rookies in clearcut fashion, as he landed most of the punches in the fight.

Just before a faceoff O'Reilly goes at it with Cochrane. Curran charges in against Brown who let his lefts fly. Curran answers with rights until Brown gets him down on the ice. After a short while they both get up and Brown throw uppercuts and bodyshots while Curran has his jersey pulled over his head. They wrestle with each other for a long time along the boards. Curran lands a good left and Brown finishes the fight with some lefts of his own. Curran was a scrappy fellow and didn't give up in this fight, although he lost it.

Before the draw O'Reilly drops the gloves with Cochrane and Brown looks around and in flys Curran and they hug for a quick second before Brown gets the left going and throws a mix of uppercuts and headshots until Curran falls to the ice.

funny to watch the way this line brawl went down. Camera on Brown who's kinda looking around, and just behind him, O'reilly skates up to Cochrane (just out of camera view) and they start to go. Brown turns around to watch that one, and out of the corner of his eye he sees Curran come flying in and leaping at him.

Brownie saw him just in time and handled him easily in this in-close fight. They battle for a few seconds with Brown getting the edge then they hit the ice, but get back up and keep going.

Brown looks calm and confident as he's got Curran all tied up and bent over and he's just popping him with little uppercuts and noogies. No real damage but no doubt who won

No doubt about the winner on this one. Curran tries to get the jump on Brown but he fails. It's all Brown in this fight as he hits Curran with numerous lefts. Clear win Brown.

I love Fred Cusick's call "And here comes the heavyweight division" when Cochrane, Stanley, and Brown came out on the ice.Reply

Yup! That was a classic quote, it stuck in my mind the 1st time I watched these fights around 1992.Reply
