Vatrano and Hagel drop the gloves in a spirited bout

And Hagel gets the crowd going, tempers still boiling in the penalty box.


New York Rangers forward Frank Vatrano dropped the gloves with Tampa Bay Lightning forward Brandon Hagel in an attempt to give his team some energy but... well... Hagel seems to have plenty of energy himself.

Check out this scrap:

A very spirited bout that continued into the penalty box as the two players just jawed each other the entire time.

Unfortunately for Vatrano the scrap seemed to have the opposite of his intended effect as Nikita Kucherov put the Bolts ahead 2-0 with a breakaway goal.
