Nick Ritchie Drops Gloves With Garnet Hathaway In Bruins-Capitals

Ritchie made quick work of Hathaway


Garnet Hathaway was not in the mood to fight Thursday night, but Nick Ritchie wasn’t having it.

The Boston Bruins were up 2-0 on the Washington Capitals at Capital One Arena in the first period. After goals from Jeremy Lauzon and Anton Blidh, Ritchie decided to bring the physical presence.

Ritchie took care of Hathaway quickly with some heavy right hands before Hathaway went to the ice.

The Bruins were up 2-0 after one.
