2nd Period - 11:57•1997-1998 Regular SeasonRight off of the faceoff the two drop the gloves and tie up. McSorley throws four early rights while Simpson puts a hand in McSorley's face and throws two of his own. The two exchange quick rights while Simpson gets McSorley's jersey up and over his head. Simpson throw a mix of rights and uppercuts while McSorley is throwing blind, wild punches. McSorley gets in a right and Simpson responds with five rights, knocking McSorley's helmet off. McSorley throws two body shots just before falling down to his knees only to get right back up. The two then go back and forth with rights until Simpson rips McSorley's jersey off. They then exchange bombs, each player switching between hands and landing almost all of their punches. The two continue to go back and forth with numerous punches until they tire out and the linesmen move in. They are then escorted to the wrong penalty boxes and sent out to switch. McSorley skates over to a crowd of Blackhawks and gets shoved by Chelios. McSorley pops Chelios with a short right and the linesmen have to skate over and re-escort McSorley to the box and then the hallway.
