Nearly four minutes into the third period on Oct. 10, with the B’s trailing 4-1, Campbell went at it with the Coyotes’ Vernon Fiddler. Each player connected with a few weak jabs before grabbing hold of one another’s jerseys and wrestling to the ground.

The Bruins went on to lose the opener 5-2, but they got their revenge on Phoenix the next day in the form of a 3-0 thumping.
