March 26, 1997: A day that will long live in the minds of Detroit Red Wings and Colorado Avalanche fans. That's the day when the two teams squared off in one of the more famous brawls in NHL history. It all got started 301 days earlier during game 6 of the Western Conference Finals. Claude Lemieux hit Kris Draper from behind, slamming his face into the boards. It broke Draper's jaw, nose, cheekbone and gave him a concussion. Detroit ended up losing the series and failing to make it to the Stanley Cup Finals.
