Bob McGill grabs Keith Acton, steering him away from the net as there's a loose rebound near the crease. Acton tries to turn away and goes towards the boards, still held by McGill. McGill drives his hands into Acton's chest, propelling him off the ice and into the boards heavily. McGill finishes the hit by driving Acton down and then skating off. Acton is shaken up and tries to get to his feet but he's soon back down to the ice, forcing a stoppage in play. A trainer comes out to attend to Acton afterwards. A big hit by McGill but it was a borderline check, Acton didn't have the puck when he was taken into the boards. Fun

As Keith Acton is helped off the ice, players congregate near Bob McGill, who'd thrown the hit that hurt Acton. McGill is challenged by Willi Plett so McGill drops the gloves and gets set to square off as Plett drops the gloves too and comes charging out of the crowd at McGill. Dave Richter and Steve Payne also try to get in but Payne is grabbed by Gary Nylund while Richter winds up paired off with Jeff Brubaker. Plett and McGill go down right away so the linesmen hurry in to break them up while Payne and Nylund drop the gloves and wrestle. They wrestle to the ice without many punches being thrown and Payne holds Nylund down from on top. A linesman talks to Richter and Brubaker, who're just holding each other and having words. Eventually though the linesmen leaves them and Richter and Brubaker separate and square off. When they engage, they have a very spirited slugfest though it's fairly one-sided with Richter clearly landing many more and stronger punches though Brubaker hangs in there. As their fight goes into the corner, Payne and Nylund get up and resume wrestling, going into the corner close to the fight. Richter and Brubaker go down with the linesmen intervening and as they are split up, another linesman talks to Payne and Nylund, trying to prevent more fighting. Quite tired, Payne and Nylund agree and break up too. As Richter is escorted off, he receives some applause from Plett, who's already in the penalty box. A big brawl with three different fights breaking out. The first two didn't have much action but the Richter and Brubaker scrap was a heatet, heavyweight, tilt. Fun

After McGill checked Acton, Plett challenged McGill, who accepted the invitation. These two dropped the gloves, at the same time Richter and Brubaker came together. When the camera gets back to this fight, McGill was on top and the linesmen intervene. Plett, while he was down, started to throw some punches on the helmet.

Willi Plett challenges Bob McGill, leading to a brawl as everyone on the ice is around the two when they drop the gloves. McGill backs off to square off with Plett but Plett rushes past some others players to engage McGill. However just when they grab hold of each other, Plett slips and goes down to his back with McGill on top. From the ice, Plett lands four weak rights out of five to the helmet off McGill who just pins Plett down and waits for the linesmen, who quickly get involved and break it up. Awful fight with Plett falling right away and throwing some ineffective punches from his back at McGill. McGill was ready to go and square off with Plett but Plett went in too fast and lost his balance right away.

Just a wrestling match, they dropped the gloves, but nothing developed after that. No punches thrown in this fight, but they wanted to go i think.

Jeff Brubaker was a warrior on the ice. He would take on some of the toughest guys in the NHL. He took the worst of many battles, but he had a great fighting heart. On this occasion, he gave a courageous effort against feared heavyweight Dave Richter.

Brubaker squared off with Richter in an exaggerated fight pose. He held his hands dangerously low. He paid an immediate price as Richter slugged him with a pretty good left hook. Dave followed up with a couple of decent lefts. Jeff landed a decent left hook and missed with a couple of punches.

Richter continued to pump away with lefts. He landed a solid left hook, missed a blow, landed another solid connect, and connected with a couple of decent hooks. Brubaker landed a decent left and missed with three punches. Jeff temporarily got a solid grip on Dave's left arm.

Richter tried unsuccessfully to get a couple shots off with the left. He decided to switch to the right and landed a solid punch. Brubaker lost his grip and Dave continued his left handed barrage. Richter missed a couple of punches and landed a solid blow.

The men wrestled for a time. Richter pushed Brubaker up against the boards. Dave landed a solid left. Brubaker responded with a pretty good right. Richter came right back with a couple of pretty good lefts. Then, he landed a solid blow. Dave connected with another shot with pretty good pop.

Brubaker continued to compete and battle. He landed a pretty good left hook. Richter landed two partial connects and a solid punch. Dave landed the best punch of the fight with a hard uppercut. He followed up with a couple of partial connects as the refs were stepping in. Jeff was still fighting back despite the numerous punches he had taken. He missed a shot as the officials stopped the bout.

I rate this as a clear win for Richter. He had a big edge in punches landed. He landed several effective shots with good pop. Brubaker showed some guts by fighting back to the best of his ability. He ignored the pain and fought on. He connected with a couple pretty good blows of his own. Richter knew he was in a fight. I don't consider this a decisive win because Jeff was still fighting back at the end. This was a terrific action bout. The cameras showed Willi Plett giving the fighters a standing ovation at the conclusion.

Brubaker boldly took on the toughest men in the NHL. He usually came up on the losing end against top enforcers. He did put up quite a fight on many occasions. He had pretty good punching power and he was strong. He was not good defensively and took a lot of punishment at times. Jeff had losses against Bubba Beck, Dave Semenko, Tim Hunter, Jim Kyte, Jay Wells, Glen Cochrane, Larry Playfair, and Jay Miller. Occasionally Jeff performed well enough to earn the victory, as was the case against Jimmy Mann and Ed Kastelic.

Jeff was a guy with a high pain threshold who shared the enforcing responsibilities on the teams he played for. He was frequently in good bouts with sustained action. He played the game with zest and passion and was popular for his crowd-pleasing physical style of play. He deserves kudos for his courage and fighting spirit.

Dave Richter and Jeff Brubaker pair off at the outset of the brawl and though they drop the gloves, they just hold onto each other and do some talking, prompting a linesman to come over and talk with them as well. When the linesmen leaves however, they decide it's time to fight. Richter and Brubaker break apart and square each other up. Brubaker wades in and they both grab on with the right hand while Richter lands a left. Richter then throws three more lefts, landing two nicely as Brubaker misses two lefts and puts his head down. Richter pauses for a moment but then throws five lefts, landing three before Brubaker throws four lefts back, landing two. In the meantime Richter puts his head down and they start butting heads with each other until Richter switches hands. Richter lifts his head and lands a heavy right, forcing Brubaker to keep his head down. Richter again switches hands and lands four lefts cleanly to the back of the head. Brubaker gets in tight but gets wrestled into the glass by the bigger Richter. Richter pauses for a few moments, trying to get a hand free before throwing three lefts and landing one. Brubaker then lands a good right as Richter misses a left but Richter throws four more lefts afterwards and lands two while pulling Brubaker's head down further. Brubaker gets bent over and tries to straighten himself but then Richter switches hands and lands a hard right. Richter switches hands while Brubaker lands a right, then Brubaker misses a right as Richter lands a left and Richter throws four lefts and lands three afterwards while Brubaker puts his head back down. Brubaker misses a right while Richter misses a left and Brubaker gets turned around and bent over after. Richter misses a left and is then knocked over by the linesmen as they reach in to stop the fight.

This was a one-sided fight yet a very entertaining one. Richter starts throwing the lefts from the outset, landing more than he missed while Brubaker fails to land anything of significance until they wind up against the boards. Brubaker, with his head down, throws a blind right that lands solidly but Richter comes back with some solid left uppercuts. He mixes in the occasional right and keeps pouring it on until the end though Brubaker refuses to go down.

After they square off and come to grips, it's all Richter. He lands a number of lefts as Brubaker did just enough to stay in the fight. Richter was in control the whole time, but Brubaker stood in there and landed some shots of his own.

Clear win for Richter in a good fight with Brubaker.

Derek Laxdal and Neal Broten get tangled up after a late bump by Laxdal on Broten. Dirk Graham barges in after Laxdal despite being grabbed at by Bob McGIll and Dan Daoust. Graham pushes his way to Laxdal and gives him a shove before dropping the gloves. Graham then grabs Laxdal and barely misses a right as Laxdal falls forward. Graham pounces on top of Laxdal and holds him down while Laxdal covers up. A linesman works through the crowd and breaks up Graham and Laxdal. Nothing got going here, Graham misses with one punches before Laxdal even dropped the gloves. Laxdal fell right away and never made a move to fight back.
