Kevan Miller has his teammates’ backs.

Late in the third period of the Boston Bruins’ matchup with the Columbus Blue Jackets on Monday, Jackets winger Oliver Bjorkstrand leveled Torey Krug into the boards after both players charged for the puck.

Unfortunately for Bjorkstrand, Miller was waiting in the wings to defend his teammate’s honor.

Watch Miller send Bjorkstand to the ice with a bevy of blows in the video below:

Miller never has hesitated in dropping the gloves, but maybe the Bruins defenseman received a little inspiration from Zdeno Chara’s heavyweight bout in the second period.
