[[File:11Nov1954-Wings_scale_wire.jpg|thumb|Sawchuk, Skov and Lindsay go after a heckler, November 11, 1954.]]
 
On November 11, the [[Detroit Red Wings]] were playing a home game against the [[Toronto Maple Leafs]]. Angry that [[Metro Prystai]] had been traded to the [[Chicago Blackhawks]] at the bequest of Leafs [[Conn Smythe]] in the name of league parity, the Wings were in a foul mood. [[Ted Lindsay]] fought with Leafs [[Jim Thomson]] and then coach [[King Clancy]]. The Leafs won 1-0 and as the Wings were leaving the ice, a hometown fan heckled Glen Skov. Skov, goalie [[Terry Sawchuk]], [[Sid Abel]] and Lindsay scaled the wire mesh over the boards to get at the fan, with Lindsay punching the heckler in the eye.
