Rochester New Haven brawl 1972
Hi, first post here .... Does anyone remember this ... maybe if you happen to be from Rochester area you might. I've done some looking online and I believe the date was Dec. 17, 1972.
There was a bench-clearing brawl in Rochester between the Nighthawks and Amerks. Bob "Battleship" Kelly was on the Amerks, as was Wayne Morusyk, who had blood everywhere -- face, jersey everything. I think Gary Howatt was involved for New Haven. I was there as a teenager and was loving every minute of it. Must have taken a half-hour to restore order, fights all over the ice. Wondered if anyone remembers it ... or if by some longshot there's a video out there somewhere of it. I'd even love to see a box score.
