The Montreal Canadiens and Boston Bruins participated in an important and hard-fought game on Thursday, with the Habs scraping together a 4-3 win to bring their Northeast Division lead to four points.
When it comes to crucial games between two teams fighting over playoff seeding – not to mention their multiple decades of distaste – even “finesse” players can get a little testy. That’s exactly what happened between Michael Cammalleri and David Krejci, two players who participated in the first fight of their respective careers in this game.
Then again, this is a young season full of unexpected fights. From Alex Ovechkin to Sidney Crosby, Pavel Datsyuk and Mike Green, big money players have thrown knuckle sandwiches to the surprise of many in 2010-11.
The folks at Hockey Fights.com gave Krecji the edge in this one, with the Bruins center receiving 59.6 percent, Cammalleri getting 23.4 percent and 17 percent of readers voting the bout a draw.
