I thought Goerge McPhee bloodying Tocchet in '86 was a big relief after years of beatings.



He's getting 5 plus, book it.
In the mid 90's for those that were dialed in back then there as another changing of the guard. Remember pre-game footage that was all about the big bullying style of the Flyers with Lindros, Primeau, Berube and the new tough guy on the block big bad Claude Boivin. During the pregame they actually went into the flyers locker room where Boivin was working out with some heavy weights. Game starts and Boivin acts up. Kocurs was on the ice. Boivin goes right after him, and eats a wicked right hand. Kocur dropped him with the first and only punch of the fight. Took the wind right out of the Flyers sail.
