Park and Orr once went at it, and if not mistaken, it was in the 1972 Finals.

How long did this go on for? When did it stop?
If you are 28, then coincidentally, they were worn the year you were born. Flyers in 1981-82 and '82-'83 and Hartford Whalers in 1982-83. League outlawed them after the '83 season.
