Steve MacIntyre Will Fight You
Shortly after the Falcons went up a goal Steve MacIntyre went after Springfield. Yes, the team. It reportedly started with Greg Amadio, and then he was taking on whichever Falcon grabbed him, popping a few, including goaltender Paul Dainton - twice.
MacIntyre, one of the toughest players in all of hockey, picked up 17 minutes for his trouble. Those minutes comprised of a crosschecking minor, elbowing major and match penalty according to the official boxscore. Match penalties in the AHL come with a $200 fine and the league president investigating the matter. Word is there will be a ruling regarding the situation on Tuesday.
On this day
It'd be hard not to bring up Stu Grimson going crazy, needing to be restrained by linesmen, teammates and even coach Mike Keenan. Bryan Marchment tried to take a run at Wendel Clark. Clark stood up to it, then wound up pairing off with Steve Smith as a meleé ensued. Grimson then was hard to control for minutes, doing whatever he could to get at Clark, but never succeeded.
