Judge Ed- ward Carter found that Maki also was acting in self-defence. Judge Fitzpatrick said that neither Green nor Maki would have had criminal charges laid against them but for the blow that felled Green. Up to that point, he said, their duel was similar to thousands of rink bat- tles. He found that Maki had been guilty of two infractions against Green as the two players col- iidcd violently behind the Bos- ton net in a fight for control of a loose puck. MAKI HELD GREEN Judge Fitzpatrick said he was satisfied thai the St. Louis winger held Green by tha sweater, preventing him from skating back into position to front of goalie Gerry Cheevers. He said tliis led to Green ei- ther punching or shoving Maki in the face with his blow that constituted part of common assault charge. Maki then committed one of the worst fouls in hockey by spearing Green in the area of the testicles, the judge said. In return, he said, Green had administered "a half chop" with his stick to Maki's shoulder as a warning not to do it again. The stick swipe by Green was the other blow that the Crown alleged was an assault on Maki by the Boston defenceman. "in his judgment, delivered from the bench, Judge Fitipa- trick said Maki had delivered the most vicious blows in tha battle that prompted a crack- down on rough play in the NHL. The judge said he found game referee Ken Bodendistel, while inexperienced in NHL competi- tion, alert and competent. There had been some criticism of tha Guelph, Ont., referee at the trial. Green's only comment was: "I'm only glad it's over it last."
