The Battle that Divided the Penalty Box. NHL History!

OK, when I was a kid I remember my dad telling me how after a fight they'd put the two players in the same penalty box and the players would just go on fighting. I don't know how common that was but it happened at least once!






How long would Domi-Probert have battled if they didn't separate the box?

Astonishing it took until 1963 for the change to be made

I remember seeing two players who'd been slugging each other moments ago sitting side-by-side on the little bench. Seemed as if they were asking for trouble with that arrangement.

In that video just above your post they said the league didn't change the rule till the 64-65 season. Toronto did it 10 days after the Pulford-Harper scrap but it was of their own volition.
