Seeing fans in Montreal being raucous is nothing new. When the Bruins came rolling into Quebec last night, many had thoughts that the fisticuffs would be on the ice. Not so fast my friends, the fans can get their angry on just as well as the guys on the ice. With a game that was extremely tame on the ice, the fans decided to spice things up on their own.
Old hate dies hard between these two sides but while we’re horrified by the fight, let’s also marvel at how efficient security was in busting this up.
This dominant win is a heck of a way for the Kings to begin an imposing seven-game road trip, which continues against the New York Islanders on Thursday. The Bruins probably want to burn the tape on this one themselves, as they’re about to head on a six-game road trip.
Per @EliasSports: @LAKings had 9 different skaters score in a game for 5th time in franchise history. Last: Jan. 21, 1987 vs. PIT (10-5 W).
Some hockey players resist the urge to wear a visor, at least if they’re given that choice.
Perhaps a few will say “Hey, Nathan Beaulieu will just punch it off anyway.”
Maybe not, but Beaulieu provided a rather unique moment in his fight with Cedric Paquette during the Montreal Canadiens – Tampa Bay Lightning game. You can watch that bout in the video above, and see a cut on the Lightning pest’s face from that blow.
