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.
