Bear Knuckle Bouts: Tim Thomas Scuffles With Canadiens Goalie Carey Price

Nothing riles up a hockey crowd quite like a goalie fight.

Not that the TD Garden crowded needed riling up on Feb. 9, as the B's and Canadiens combined for 14 goals, 187 penalty minutes and several massive full-team brawls.

After a Brad Marchand hit on James Wisniewski ignited one of these scrums in the second period, goalies Tim Thomas and Carey Price decided to join the fun. The fight itself was nothing special, with Price wrestling Thomas to the ice before either could land a punch, but hey, it's a goalie fight. What more can you ask for?
