The first round series between the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Toronto Maple Leafs appeared to reach a boiling point on Saturday night at Amalie Arena, with the physicality between both teams taking a serious step up in intensity.

The game would feature a fight between a pair of 60 goal scorers in Leafs star forward Auston Matthews and Lightning captain Steven Stamkos, which itself was part of a larger scrum that ensued off the back of a hit from Morgan Rielly that left Lightning forward Brayden Point in considerable pain.

Things weren't just intense on the ice though with the fans in the crowd also getting into the mix, even clashing with Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Kyle Dubas at one point during the evening. 

A Lightning fan has published a video on social media that he captured during Game 3 at Amalie Arena, one that shows Dubas getting into it with members of the crowd. Presumably Dubas is going back and forth with opposing fans during the course of the game, although it's hard to tell exactly when this interaction occurred.

The fan who published the video claims that Dubas was "yelling" at Lightning fans in the crowd after the aforementioned hit on Brayden Point, which would certainly be a bad look for the Leafs GM. That being said, Dubas' body language and demeanor in this clip certainly doesn't appear to convey any anger or mean-spiritedness, but we don't have the benefit of hearing what was actually being said.
