Edmonton Oilers vs. Pittsburgh Penguins 1980 Brawl

In anticipation of tonight’s Edmonton Oilers vs Pittsburgh Penguins game, here’s a throwback clip from 1980 of an epic brawl that I got to witness first hand. Watch the crowd reaction and how pissed off Glen Sather gets.

This all happens because Kim Clackson whacked Wayne Gretzky on the side of his head with his stick.

I share a quick memory with lowetide here: https://lowetide.ca/…/13/game-56-2018-19-oilers-at-penguins/
