The Columbus Blue Jackets took an earlier 2-0 lead in the second game of the best-of-seven series against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Friday and the best team in the NHL wasn't happy about it.
That's six unanswered goals for Columbus. At the end of the first period, the Lightning tried their best to get closer and into goalie Sergei Bobrovsky's space and the Blue Jackets did not appreciate. As players gathered close to the star netminder after a quick glove save, Bolts forward Bradyen Point bolted towards Zach Werenski, ready for a fight.
The speedy forward removed his mitts and started punching Werenski, who had to quickly shift into fight mode. Minutes earlier, he had just scored the second goal of the contest.
It was easy to tell the Point was looking to get the crowd going and motivate his players to get into the game and start answering to the Jackets' offense.
Both players were sent to the dressing room seeing there was left than five minutes to go in the first period.
What a series!
