Tale of the tape:
Terry O'Reilly: 6'1" 200 lbs 228 career fighting majors
Dave Schultz: 6'1" 185 lbs 246 career fighting majors
"He actually won this fight. You know what the tough thing about fighting him was? He was a lefty and I'm a righty. His left was wide open. Of course, so was my right, you know?
"He didn't hurt me. I got in a few. We fought so many times. If anyone asks who the toughest guy I ever fought was, I'd say Terry O'Reilly. It was his job to fight me every time. If you watch this closely from the beginning, I was going to fight with Forbes. And you'd see him go in and out of players just to get to me and fight me. That's why we fought eight times."

Just about every time the Bruins faced the Flyers Terry O'Reilly and Dave Schultz went at it. The pair fought eight times during their career. They probably would have scraped many more times than they did, but Schultz retired after the 1979-80 season while O'Reilly played until 1985. Schultz hold the single season penalty minute record with an unheard of 472 minutes during the 1974-1975 season. That included 35 fighting majors in part of those 472 minutes. Dave Schultz and Terry O'Reilly were two of the best fighters in the history of the NHL.
