The Capitals, the Penguins . . . they just don’t like each other much, for a long time now.

    You want a real fight?

    I was 6 years old when this happened and remember this fight like it was yesterday.

    Gould vs Lemieux. 😀

    Now if only someone would do that to Cooke…Chimera, Knuble? I’d suggest Bradley but he’s more a bleeder than a striker.

    That youtube clip from comment #1 is great! I didn’t remember that one but I do remember how the cameras used to get right into the penalty boxes and scorers table. As great as TV angles and quality of picture have gotten since then, I miss not hearing all of that interaction. They probably are afraid of what words will be said before they get a chance to bleep.

  5. I will admit – this one made me smile

    Man, I love watching the old school battles. To a lot of new NHL and Caps fans those videos probably look ridiculous. However, if you remember the personal rivalries and battles those guys used to have, the videos are beauty.

    I love seeing young Brooks step up in this one, if only someone could have punched out Crosby that night..

    Wow, is that Smokin’ Al commenting in the clip of the Lemieux/Gould fight? His voice has changed a lot over the years.

    Tinordi really was a mean SOB, he didn’t fight a lot but I never saw him lose one.

    I loved those Jimmy Schoenfeld Capitals teams. Not a lot of goals, but tough as nails and so hard to play against. Every game was like a little war. Berube was in his prime and never lost. Tinordi was a monster. There was a kid named Kaminski who was tiny, psychotic, and utterly fearless. Oh and Dale Hunter…
