1959 Rangers vs. Maple Leafs

Enjoy!




The initial participants:

Leafs
#2 Marc Reaume
#15 Billy Harris
#17 Gary Ehman
#23 Noel Price
#27 Frank Mahovlich

Rangers
#2 Jack Bownass
#3 Harry Howell
#5 Eddie Shack
#7 Red Sullivan
#15 Hank Ciesla


When the teams come off their benches, you can clearly see:

Leafs
#10 George Armstrong (captain)
#16 Bert Olmstead

Rangers
#8 Lou Fontinato
#10 Earl Ingarfield
#12 Andy Hebenton
#16 Les Colwill
#17 Dean Prentice
#21 Camille Henry


Noteworthy moments

0:05 - It all starts with Reaume throwing a flying hip check at Ciesla. Perhaps dazed, Ciesla grabs Mahovlich and starts throwing.

0:25 - Eddie Shack, one of the all time greatest agitators, gets Bownass in a clinch and then A-frames him for a good part of the fight.

0:46 - Shack, still holding Bowman in a headlock, throws a punch at another Leaf!

1:10 - Could be wrong, but I think that's Shack and Price.

1:15 - Hall of Famer Harry Howell flings Billy Harris to the ice like a rag doll.

1:45 - After everything had calmed down, Shack gets it going again and taunts Reaume into making a fool of himself.

2:13 - George Armstrong lays a nice elbow into a Ranger's back before charging onto the penalty bench.

3:00 - Penalty timekeeper pretends to read his notes in the middle of a brawl.

4:05 - Early example of front-row dooshbag waving at the camera.

I'm confused.

Is it a regular donnybrook? or a regular free-for-all?



Thanks for the vid.

Fighting after clean hits since 1959.

Lol at Shack.

Thanks for the vid, man.

The code police would be all over that.


If there is a better example of how much BS this mythical code it, I want to see it. Because the video above pretty much kills the mantra that players used to respect each other more.

At least this fight started with the player getting hit standing up for himself before everybody else jumped in and not his team protecting him.

ground and pound was a common tactic right into the 70s for sure that I remember

hockey used to be a much much rougher and scarier game to play back then than it is now

Never knew what to make of Eddie Shack It seems he was always employed as an enforcer-type yet I don't really think he was much of a fighter? More of a body-checker/wrestler who I don't really think was feared. A great all-time character though.

Thanks for this. Love seeing these old clips. Too bad ,so many tapes have been thrown away. I would love to see the Ferguson-Green fight in the playoffs & Ferguson_Hull.
