On the ice at the time was Howell, Bathgate, Richard, among others. Video was taken at Frank Boucher's request, for the purpose of analyzing player performance and strategy. It was uncovered in 2011 when MSG was reorganizing the thousands of rolls of film they had in the store room.
Murphy missed the rest of the season with a broken jaw and concussion. Geoffrion was suspended for the remaining matches between the two teams for the rest of the season. How many games would he have gotten today? Perhaps a lifetime ban and jail time.
And the suspension reflects on the Richard suspension...for all of the playoffs, just over a year later, which ironically led to Geffrion winning the Art Ross to the disdain (unfairly) of Canadiens' fans

Oh Man, absolutely. Assault with a Weapon, possibly Attempted Homicide. Thats just beyond anything. I mean, what can you say? Have to plead Temporary Insanity and throw yourself at the mercy of the court. Makes McSorleys stick on Brashear or Bertuzzi's jump on Moore look minor in comparison huh? Full on psycho. Boom Boom there just winding right up with a two hander. Ive seen stick work at ice level but fortunately the Ref's and or other players intervened.
