The Hawks play Montreal in the Forum. Bobby Hull is back in the lineup with special headgear to protect the broken jaw he received in a Toronto game 10 days earlier.
The Chicago Tribune said "Ferguson who was checked off the puck by Hull suddenly turned on the Chicago star and started swinging. Bobby covered up quickly, but then he too started swinging" I saw the game on national tv and this is accurate. Players and refs quickly cam in and quickly broke it up before it escalated. Hull then scored two goals to help Chicago win 6-3. The article also said Ferguson was loudly booed by the Montreal fans when he started going after the injured Hull. (Ferguson later denied attacking the injured Hull in his book). I saw this fight when it happened. Due to refs and players quickly breaking it up, it never really got started. It was quite gutless however of Ferguson to get revenge on Hull when he was injured. One month earlier, (dec 8th, 1968) Ferguson lost a fight to Hull. Let it be stated that once Hull got healthy, Ferguson never challenged him again to settle the score.
