What happened? Nothing. Stewart and the Blues shut the hell up, and there were no fights, or even penalties the rest of the 3rd period, and there were no fights in the back to back games at the end of the year after that either.
Say what you will about enforcers but they do settle things down. No one has a crystal ball, but I would hazard a guess things might have been at least a little different if Bordy hadn't been there to do that.
Nothing else most likely happened because Olver didn't play much more than Bordeleau as a fourth line player and the game was tied so St. Louis didn't want to put the Avs on the power play. Much more likely scenario than Bordeleau "scaring" the Blues bench into submission.
