The Boston Bruins’ tilt with the Winnipeg Jets was a chippy one.
After Charlie McAvoy and Neal Pionk got into a tussle following McAvoy’s big hit on Mark Scheifele in the first period, there was another scrap in the middle stanza.
As Brad Marchand carried a puck through the neutral zone, Nikolaj Ehlers caught up to him and put a heavy hit on him. That prompted the two wingers to fight, though the bout didn’t last too long.
However, at the conclusion of the fight, Marchand made a point to flex at Ehlers while skating to the penalty box.
Both Marchand and Ehlers received fighting majors.
