Philadelphia Flyers played against Pittsburgh Penguins in the Patrick Division Final 1989, Hextall's performances were mixed: he under-performed early in the series, and in game five was swapped out of the net and then reinstated twice during a 10--7 defeat for the Flyers. Hextall faced 17 shots in the game, conceding nine of the Penguins goals. After the game, he denied being out of control, despite having assaulted one of the officials and chasing Rob Brown around the ice. He said, "I like to think I'm strong mentally. Hey, if I was as out of control as people say I am, I wouldn't be in the National Hockey League."

Rob Brown on the incident:

"I think I'm in Penguins lore because of Hextall chasing me around the ice. I scored the ninth goal of the game. He obviously wasn't having a good night. Back then, I always used to celebrate after every goal. It was 9-2 and if I was about to celebrate, Hextall was going to me sure he got his piece of me. I was in the corner and Dan Quinn was coming in to give me a high-five and I could just see Hextall behind him. I just remember skating up the boards with my head turned back hoping someone would grab the crazy goalie."

"This is the only place in the world where I'm known as 'Robbie.' I'll get a phone call. If they ask for 'Robbie,' it's someone from Pittsburgh."

Big thanks to Seth Rorabaugh over at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette for the story.
