Tie Domi/Scott Niedermayer incident - 2001 playoffs
- Published on: Monday, July 6, 2009
- This is the famous incident between Tie Domi of the Maple Leafs and Scott Niedermayer of the Devils. It's from game four of the team's 2001 second round playoff series.
In the dying seconds of the game, Niedermayer viciously headbutts Domi's elbow. To make a bad situation even worse, Niedermayer then lays down on the ice for a nap, refusing to leave until they bring him a portable bed.
As a direct result of this incident, Domi was unable to play again until well into the next season.
