P.K. Subban Vs. Brad Marchand Fight Video From Bruins-Canadiens Game in Boston

The Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens went to war on Thursday night (Oct. 27, 2011) at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts.

And P.K. Subban and Brad Marchand were on the front lines.

Things got ugly late in the second period when Subban, who skated in at an even six feet and 206-pounds, threw a wild overhand right that sent him — not Marchand — crashing to the ice. That kind of thing can happen when you swing and miss.

Fortunately for him, the Boston forward, who’s 5’9" and 183-pounds soaking wet, was unable to capitalize on his downed opponent and the Canadiens defenseman was able to spring right back to his feet.

What followed can only be described as the NHL’s version of shaken baby syndrome, as both players grabbed a fistful of jersey and played tug of war for the next minute or so.

Sure, a few intermittent punches were exchanged, but hardly anything that would be constituted as "fighting." They eventually relinquished their grips and skated off in exhaustion.

Oh, and the Bruins lost by a score of 2-1. Find out how by clicking here.


Bruins Vs. Canadiens Final Score: Montreal Tops Boston 2-1

Thursday night’s match-up between the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens, which emanated from the TD Garden in Boston, Mass., has come to a close.

So too, has any hope of the Bruins getting out the funk they’ve been mired in since last weekend’s loss to the San Jose Sharks. So much for the vaunted "mental break" we heard about earlier this week.

Boston got on the board late in the first period after a power play goal scored by Patrice Bergeron, who wristed one in after taking advantage of Petteri Nokelainen’s penalty for interference.

Montreal’s Erik Cole (assisted by Jaroslav Spacek and David Desharnais) was able to tip one in midway through the second to make it even at one apiece before Tomas Plekanec (with a little help from Brian Gionta and Josh Gorges) snapped one in during the final frame to put the Canadiens up for good.

The Bruins drop to 3-6-0 with the loss while Montreal improves to 3-5-2.
