Video: Miller drops Moen with punch as Bruins-Habs heats up (Updated)

Mar 24, 2014, 8:11 PM EDT

It didn’t take long for Boston and Montreal to renew hostilities on Monday night.

Less than five minutes into the opening frame, Habs forward Travis Moen took exception to a hit Kevan Miller put on Dale Weise, leading to this scrap:

As you can see, the tilt didn’t end well for Moen. The immediate concern for the gritty veteran will be his history of concussions, which some feared would be an issue when he suffered a broken orbital bone earlier this season.

Montreal had suffered a loss in the toughness category last week when Brandon Prust was lost for the season with a rib injury. The club’s other enforcer, George Parros, was scratched for tonight’s game.

For Miller, the fight further established him as one of the more dangerous fighters in his weight class, having already scored victories over the likes of Ottawa’s Zack Smith and San Jose’s Mike Brown.

Update: Montreal has announced that neither Moen nor Weise will return to tonight’s game.
