Geoff Courtnall narrow win Fun

big scrum and a lot of interference at the beginning of this one, hard to see. But eventually they get a little space away from everyone and Courtnall throws a few and down they go. Hawerchuk tried to throw from his back

Hard to follow with all the other players milling around but Courtnall is the busier fighter and looked to land a blow or two, could probably be rated as "unfair" due to a lot of interference from other players.

Decent line brawl with a couple scraps, one of them a real beating laid on by Paul MacLean. Fun

Paul MacLean decisive win Fun

I'd never heard any stories of Paul MacLean being an especially good fighter, but boy, did he ever put on a hockey fighting clinic here against the noted Bruin tough guy Lyndon Byers.

A scrum has developed along the boards in the neutral zone in this game between the Jets and the Bruins. The players pair off with each other and disperse around the ice. The Jets' forward Paul MacLean skates over to have a few words with the Bruins rookie Lyndon Byers. Byers pushes MacLean once and they drop the gloves, and MacLean proceeds to totally embarrass Byers, who has no chance against the veteran scrapper.

MacLean is the more active fighter from the beginning and throws several rights at Byers and then throws three more uppercuts which Byers can't defend against and he is possibly cut by one of them. Byers attempts a couple of rights of his own, neither of which connects. This causes MacLean to respond by changing hands and he throws a left which connects cleanly to the face of the Bruin. This seems to come as a total surprise to Byers and his desire to continue the fight is dwindling fast.

MacLean connects with one more big right to the head of Byers, whose helmet falls off because of the impact of the punch to the head. Now the Bruin rookie has clearly had enough and he blatantly turtles. MacLean, whose jersey has come off during the fight, gives the defeated Byers one more scornful look and then skates away to the penalty box accompanied by the sound of the wildly cheering Winnipeg crowd.
Byers eventually became a pretty good heavyweight fighter in the NHL, but here he only managed to reveal how much he had yet to learn.

Fred Cusick commented after the Coutnall bout that the Bruins "hadn't won many fights lately." The team was in a funk after their heyday in the late 1970's and early 1980's. Lyndon Byers was a young tough guy with some promise. He was on the ice during the line brawl and took on veteran power forward Paul MacLean.

LB shoved MacLean in the chest and Paul immediately started landing effective right hands. Paul got a lockdown grip on the Bruin's right arm. He landed a couple of solid right hands. He missed a punch and landed three solid uppercuts.

Byers tried to muscle a couple of right uppercuts through the strong grip. He landed a partial connect and missed a shot. MacLean landed an average right and popped LB with a solid left hook. He switched to throwing rights again. Paul landed a solid blow and a good right that stunned Byers. LB was bent over. MacLean landed another pretty good blow and pulled him to the ice. Byers was slumped over on the ice.

I rate this as a decisive win for MacLean. Paul beat the bag out of the young Bruins enforcer. LB was not ready for the big time yet. He got his clock cleaned in this one.

Players are milling around after the Courtnall-Hawerchuk scrap and these 2 drop the gloves. MacLean lands 3 solid uppercuts and continues the onslaught knocking Byers helmet off with another punch and shoving him down to the ice. The Boston announcer said Byers was cut but hard to see it on the tape.

Impressive win by MacLean. He was quite underrated when he got riled up. Not a fighter, but in the category of players who could defend himself very well. Here he never gave Byers a chance. MacLean showed a nice variety of punches, switching between uppercuts, rights and lefts. He landed a couple of big ones before muscling Byers to the ice. MacLean looked very impressive in this fight, showing fine boxing skills. I think Byers was surprised by MacLean in this one.

this was absolutely a decisive win by definition. Byers never got started, McLean landed some hard, short uppercuts, even switched hands and landed. Byers was bothered by the punches, and purposely dropped to his knees and turtled to end the fight.

Great showing by MacLean who takes the fight to Byers landing several blows including a big right that sends Byers into a turtle position.

I love how Fred Cusick said that the Bruins "haven't been winning many fights" in the middle of the clip. He was a real gentleman and a great hockey announcer. I love his calls of the old fights and I miss him. I remember Cusick fondly. I was able to pick up a hockey card autographed by him and it is part of my collection.Reply

Byers was simply unable to cope with Paul's brilliant paint brush-like mustache... Likely he was distracted by itReply
