Joe Kocur drops gloves against former Detroit Red Wings teammate Bob Probert (VIDEO)

Former Detroit Red Wings forwards Joe Kocur and Bob Probert were two of the most formidable enforcers in hockey history, forming the intimidating 1-2 punch known as the “Bruise Brothers” during their time in the Motor City.

They would both eventually go their separate ways, though Kocur would soon find his way back to Detroit after a stint with the New York Rangers. The pair dropped the gloves against one another on more than one occasion, including at Joe Louis Arena.

In honor of Kocur’s birthday, we’re throwing it back to another occasion when the two dropped the gloves at Chicago’s United Center during the 1996-97 season.

How many times did you see these either of these two legends drop the gloves in person?

What do you think?
