    Ran across this while searching for goalies who fought while playing for the Penguins. It's somewhat rare that a goalie gets into a fight, but former Penguins goalie fought Tiger Williams three different times.

    April 9, 1977 vs Toronto
    December 6, 1978 vs Toronto
    February 29, 1984 vs Vancouver

    Herron wasn't exactly a big guy (5' 10", 165 lbs) and was giving up at least 2 inches and 30 lbs on Tiger. Was there a backstory to this, or was it just being at the right place at the right time?

    Tiger was always raising hell with the other goalies back in the day. Denis Heron had that Quebecer short temper.

    Yep, Tiger lived to torment goalies, and well, everyone else.

    The perfect storm...
    Billy Smith had 5 fights with Williams.
