After an impressive game 1 for the Boston Bruins, game 2 unfortunately didn't go there way. The Bruins currently trail the Panthers 6-1 and with this embarrassing effort and loss came multiple episodes of tempers boiling over. Late in the 3rd period after Brandon Montour celebrated a 6-1 goal, Brad Marchand took exception.

This came after a precious scrum which saw Nick Cousins and Pat Maroon ejected.

After the scrum head coach Paul Maurice as he felt the Bruins were simply taking liberties with his team in the blowout.

Things escalated quickly and ultimately saw David Pastrnak drop the gloves with Matthew Tkachuk in what was a very lopsided fight.

The referees made the decision to award all players on the ice with misconducts to try and get the game under control. Unfortunately that didn't work as things continued to get heated between the two teams as they look to set the tone for the remainder of the season.
