Detroit Red Wings – Tampa Bay Lightning likely ranks as the series that would be least likely to draw big-time fireworks as far as physicality goes.
The playoffs bring out the competitive sides – and sometimes the dark sides – of players more than regular season games, so sometimes even less fight-friendly teams get angry when they start fighting over territory.
That happened during the second period of the Red Wings – Lightning game, as Alex Killorn‘s hit on Dylan Larkin set off a series of squabbles between the two teams. You can watch the sometimes chaotic, sometimes amusing anger in the video above.
No power plays surfaced from those scuffles.
But plenty of penalties.
