Draw Fun 
This wasn't much of a scrap, but the footage is a rare look at a black-and-white telecast involving the expansion Washington Capitals. Bill Chadwick said that the trouble started after Greschner "took a shot" at Nicholson after the whistle was blown for an off sides call. Paul came back at Ron and the men had a brief fight.

The footage was choppy and there is no clear visual evidence that punches landed. The men wrestled to the ice pretty quickly. Pete Laframboise and Yvon Labre were on the scene. John Bednarski and Derek Sanderson were holding them at bay. No real damage was done as it was mostly grabbing, pushing, and shoving. The officials separated the men and the fight was over.

I rate this as a draw. I didn't see any punches land. It was a short fight with mostly wrestling. Nicholson was still heated after the officials broke up the fight. This seems to provide evidence that "The Big Whistle" was correct in his assertion that Greschner started the fight.
