Watch: Leafs pack a punch in win over Flyers

Feb 25, 2013, 11:13 PM EDT

The Toronto Maple Leafs continue to play with truculence, a adage made famous by former general manager Brian Burke.

Leafs forward Mike Brown dropped the gloves with Philadelphia Flyers tough guy Tye McGinn immediately after a neutral zone faceoff in the first period of Monday’s game, and a bout of fisticuffs it turned out to be. Brown originally went to the ice, but got back up to keep exchanging punches with McGinn, who was cut open in the fight.

McGinn’s jersey was also ripped in the fight.

The Leafs made it four wins in their last six games thanks to a 4-2 victory over the Flyers.

    Make Don happy? Last Saturday he could barely contain his excitement about the Leafs’ truculent play.

      No, it’s hard to punch when he’s off balance….he was hanging on to Brown when Brown slipped. McGinn just got his a$$ kicked is all…..”too nice”, lol….

        i was regurgitating what rick tocchet said during the intermission, i tend to agree with him for once – a fight is a fight – hit him til he quits

      Your so right,,, one of the reason you fight in hockey is to make people not want to fight you ! I realize some idiots on here who have never had a heated argument won’t understand that and will pull out what about the good sportmanships card,you know what good sportmanship gets you when you fight in this league it gets you a job picking buzzards of a crap wagon with boxing gloves so you better go till dish’s are done ! Lesson learned !
