Nevin markwart was 5-10 180. That's pretty small considering what he did to lemieuxs face...
In the "I can't believe it was the same game" category... Check out " neely and Corson fight" on you tube. Nov 20, 1986.
Correction, Neely was bloody because of an errant puck to the face which was stiched up but was reopened in this fight.
Check out Corson at the end of the clip. He looks like he has no idea where he is.
I hated Shayne Corson as much as any gutless puuke those 1980s and 1990s Canadiens teams had.
Every single time the time would come to answer the bell, they'd either do something dirty or back off like little girls.
Remember this classic from Probert/Domi?
I hated Corson too. He was a punk early in his career, I had the impression he was a goon. Then he ended up being around for a while and scored 273 goals. Turns out he was exactly what you said... After checking his bio , he was suspended for a game 7 for trying to kick a player after losing a fight... among other controversies in his career.
In that fight Neely nails corson with multiple lightening fast left hooks. Watching that clip was the first time seeing it for me. At the game it was at the other end of the ice along the boards... At the time I thought corson had cut Neely with his stick. gotta appreciate youtube... !
Some other facts about that game. 11-20-86 Montreal had won the cup the prior year and still owned the bruins in the playoffs(18 series in a row going back to 1943) Bs didn't break that curse until '88. interesting that the rivalry goes back to 1924... Its a lot like the red sox Yankees in many ways except a lot bloodier...
