Gregory Campbell‘s a hard-nosed hockey player who finishes his checks. Buffalo’s Cody McCormick took exception to a Campbell forecheck behind his own net and came up high on a hit on the Boston center. The gloves dropped simultaneously.

Campbell, despite a 3-inch height differential, landed one solid uppercut in the bout won by McCormick, but proved his toughness to the Boston faithful.
