Habs and Nordiques Rivalry on Good Friday 1984
The biggest hockey brawl ever happened 33 years ago on Good Friday as the Montreal Canadiens were playing against the Quebec Nordiques.
Eleven players were ejected from the game. 252 penalty minutes were handed out. There was still a period to play. Among the players on the ice, fighting like there is no tomorrow: Chris Nilan, Wilf Paiement, Mike McPhee, Dale Hunter, Guy Carboneau, Mario Tremblay, Peter Stastny, Louis Sleigher, Jean Hamel, Mark Hunter.
Chris Nilan, one of the toughest men ever said it was “the scariest thing he was ever involved in.”
