A simmering rivalry bubbled over in a game for the ages 10 years ago.
On March 26, 1997, while the Colorado Avalanche and the Detroit Red Wings were positioning themselves for the upcoming NHL playoffs, bad blood from the previous postseason boiled into unadulterated fury at Joe Louis Arena. The teams combined for nine fights, 11 goals, 39 penalties, 148 penalty minutes, one hat trick, one “turtle” and two Stanley Cup champion goalies duking it out in an overtime thriller.
The box score alone is suitable for framing.
