FLYERS DAVE BROWN POUNDS THE CRAP OUT OF TIE DOMI (VIDEO)
A personal favorite moment was a game in December of 1991. The Flyers were playing the Islanders. Brad Jones was a quick, stick-handling center for the Flyers. He was not a fighter by any stretch. He was also coming back from a broken nose injury which kept him out of the lineup.
For whatever reason, Islanders tough guy Ken Baumgartner jumped Brad Jones and pounded him into oblivion. It was an unprovoked and uncalled for attack by a goon on a non-fighter.
During Baumgartner's first shift out of the box, he found himself lined up against Dave Brown who seemed to take special pleasure in destroying the Islander. Brown broke Baumgartner's orbital bone and at one point seemed to be strangling him.
As Brown aged he started trying different gimmicks to give himself the upper hand against younger combatants. These included dropping his gloves, removing his helmet, jersey and elbow pads immediately. It only worked with varying degrees of success.
Still, at the end of his career, Tie Domi couldn't beat him.
