Lemieux was one tough hombre when he needed to be - part of what made him such a great player, that he wasn't so small and non-physical as Gretzky.

Plus, Ference wasn't that big Still - it was a great game for him, and lessee...Lemieux in the box for 5 and Ference in the box for 5...which team comes up short on that trade?
Ference wasn't a bad fighter, though. I'm not sure he was expecting that, but he was smart to hang on. He had the Pens totally of their game and they kept focusing on him.
