Good Friday Massacre
 
29 years ago...



A total of 252 penalty minutes were incurred and 10 players were ejected.

I'd take one of these every once in a while over a nightly staged goon battle every time.

this started because of goon.......

And thats how you create rivalry. Too bad majority of media bash ruff play

This was the epitome of a brawl at its finest. Two teams that flat out hated each other with a blind passion. In the 1980s there was a little bit of a break with the Boston/Montreal rivalry. But Quebec/Montreal really picked it up and they had some wonderful playoff series between the two. 1982 and 1985 both were series that ended on an overtime goal in the clinching game and 1984 had the massacre. Great times.

this is the kind of stuff I wanna see now, this is the kind of stuff that creates rivalries that are great like this one was.

It was so intense the Hunter brothers grappled on the ice. Families came to blows watching the game at home... spectacular yes, a part of Quebec lore forever, but also a very sad sight when you think about it.

Ron Fournier once said that instead of his mandatory post-game report, referee Bruce Hood faxed the league a piece of paper that said "I Quit" and that was it for Bruce Hood in the NHL.
