    Mine would be Minnesota Boston, back in the days of the Adams division. I believe it started either just as or just before the puck dropped at the start of the game. It set the record for pms at the time.

    I was at this one, definetly my favorite

    http://youtube.com/watch?v=tf9XCTUm6MM It was so crazy seeing Mike Bishai fighting the atlanta guy after he had been pulled into the atlanta bench. I've never heard it as loud in Rexall during the regular season.

    The Holy Friday Massacre (Habs-Nordiques) back in the 80s. Can't beat that good old fashion animosity and violence:)

    I second that one. Isn't that the one where Gillis knocked out Jean Hamel with the sucker punch on the boards?

    Craig Coxe / Bob Probert in the 80s. OMG. :amazed:

    Edit: Yes, I realize this wasn't a brawl so much as a single, very entertaining fight. It just sticks out to me.

    Nothing can beat that brawl. Anything else in this thread is just 2nd to that classic.

    The Boston Bruins going into the stands at Madison Square Gardens on December 23, 1979.

    It is famous for "Mad Mike" Milbury then a Bruins D-man pulling off a Ranger fan's shoe and hitting him over the head with it.

    "It's unbelievable that after more than 30 years in the game, pummeling a guy with his loafer will be my legacy. But I guess it's better than having no legacy at all." - Mike Milbury

    Have to disagree with Mike there. As much as Islander fans would love his legacy to be beating a Ranger fan with a shoe, the reality is that MM will be remembered for the way he took a franchise with a major dynasty in its storybooks and turned it into nothing less than a travelling carnival. The Isles seem like maybe they're coming out of that period now (good for hockey in the area), but I won't be remembering him for any footwear.

    EDIT: And another thing, it's Madison Square Garden. Singular. Just one Garden. Canadians say "Gardens" all the time because they are thinking of Maple Leaf Gardens. MSG came first. It stayed last. Singular. Garden. Thanks for calling. :rant:

    Here's another vote for the Good Friday Massacre. It was so good they decided to go at it again after the intermission. Also, Philly and Montreal in 1987 after the Flyers grew tired of Claude Lemeiux ritually scoring into an empty net at the end of warm-up.

    Mine would be the 1991 Brawl between the Blues and Hawks that featured Dave Manson and Scott Stevens going toe to toe.

    The St. Patrick's Day Massacre. One of the chippiest games between two good teams that I've ever seen.

    when Jim Schoenfeld happened to bump Don Koharski, causing Koharski to fall, and then when Koharski tried to assert his authority, he was told to "have another doughnut, you fat pig". :sarcasm:

    Rangers Leafs 1971 playoffs at MSG.

    Wild brawl that went on forever. Bernie Parent's mask got tossed into the crowd and even with the police's help could not be retrieved. Jacques Plante had to replace him because he did not have a spare mask.
