David Pastrnak takes another shot at Matthew Tkachuk after Game 2!

This ain’t over…

On Wednesday night, the Florida Panthers routed the Boston Bruins 6-1 to tie the second-round series at a game apiece.
But so much more happened in this contest and trending still is the fight between star players Matthew Tkachuk and David Pastrnak. 136 penalty minutes were handed out in the third period and that’s what led to the two top players dropping the gloves.

Tkachuk ended up landing several shots in on Pasta, who had first checked with his head coach Jim Montgomery if it was okay for him to fight.

While Tkachuk, who was strongly encouraged by his father Keith from the stands, came out on top, both players had agreed to square off and as soon as they were back on the ice, gloves came off and the fight was on mid-play at center ice.

Pastrnak and Tkachuk threw haymakers at each other and despite going down a few times, the Panthers superstar managed to deliver a solid knockout punch to the Bruins’ forward.

Pasta was visibly shaken but went back in for more, absolutely livid that Tkachuk jumped him and threw a shot on the way down, before they were separated.

After the game, Pastrnak took an extra shot at Tkachuk, saying:

“I’m not afraid of him (Tkachuk), I can take a punch.”

The series now shifts to Boston for Game 3 on Friday night and Game 4 on Sunday night. And Pastrnak made it clear that he is not afraid of Tkachuk and the Panthers.
