Like everyone else in the building, Canadiens forward Rene Bourque knew a fight was coming.

Unfortunately for Capitals pugilist Matt Hendricks, he was more than ready for it and proved it by taking down the Caps brawler.

Bourque, who took out Nicklas Backstrom back on Jan. 3 as a member of the Flames, threw down with Hendricks just a minute into the Caps-Habs game and the result wasn’t necessarily what the away team was hoping for, as seen below.
