Rock 'em, sock 'em hockey as Don Cherry would put it. David Pastrnak of the Boston Bruins and Matthew Tkachuk of the Florida Panthers engaged in a fight in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Both the combatants weren't the first of the game. They fought as one of the last in a 6-1 hockey game in favour of Florida.

The supposed big bad Bruins looked like teddy bears compared to their opposing Panthers tonight in Florida.

With game three of the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs semifinal due to be hosted at TD Garden, the Bruins will have to reclaim their big and bad status.

They need a strong response to the Panthers after being pushed around, but will they give that response?

Boston must go into TD Garden bringing the pitchforks and be ready for a fight of the century.

If I'm Matthew Tkachuk or Nick Cousins, you better have your head on a swivel because with the amount of stuff they pulled this game, including the Pastrnak and Tkachuk fight, they will meet their match.

Boston and Florida are tied in the series at one game a piece. The Bruins will look to respond with a strong pushback to the Florida Panthers who came ready to bully the supposed big bad Bruins.
