Games between the Boston Bruins and Vancouver Canucks always tend to be rowdy affairs. Zac Rinaldo continued that tradition in the teams’ latest meeting.
Rinaldo dropped the gloves with Canucks winger Derek Dorsett just 2:07 into the first period Saturday night. Both combatants landed a few solid haymakers, and Rinaldo ultimately ended his first bout as a Bruin by shoving Dorsett to the ice.
As Rinaldo and Dorsett served their respective fighting majors, Brad Marchand opened the scoring, beating Canucks goalie Jacob Markstrom at the 2:54 mark of the first to put the Bruins up 1-0.
