Then, Irek Gimaev and Tim Thomas punched each other out, Gimaev ripping the US flag off Thomas' sweater.
Late in the game, all heck broke loose after Slava Fetisov pounded Jim Johnson and then decked another American with one punch; Tim Thomas and Irek Gimaev slugged each other to a standstill.
Tikhonov also inserted the kid line of Makrov, Irek Gimayev, and Viktor Tyumanev for the last game, and all three sparkled.
Irek Gimaev was given minor and misconduct penalties for spearing Kirk Muller.
These quotes indicate that not only did he have a mean streak, a rarity for a Soviet player, but that he may have also played some forward as well.
