On what channel did you watch this on? I had a copy given to me by a friend recently, which he taped off of his Canadian based dish. What a classic comeback.
From what I recall, the two brawls were quite intense. Now, that I've finally watched it 21 years after the fact. The fighting didn't seem to be as bad. There were many guys (Naslund, Lafleur, Shutt, Mondou, Naslund) playing the role of peacemaker that evening. Whereas, others, like Nilan, M. Hunter, McPhee, Tremblay, Walter and Sevigny weren't so sedated.
A few weeks ago TSN showed the infamos seventh game from 1985. I did watch bits and pieces of it. If anything, just to remember the special atmosphere in the Forum that night. However, I refused to watch the OT. Peter Statsny! Arghhh!
I wish when they showed classic games they would show some of the original commercials and post game, intermission interviews etc.... Would add to it
That would be cool. I remember the '72 Canada-Russia series when they had TV commercials for TD Bank in Russian. Or when Tretiak was saying one thing during an interview while the Russian translator was saying another.
