Wednesday night's matchup was their second meeting in four days and emotions boiled over in the first period after a clean hit by Luke Schenn on Ryan Stoa:
The resulting penalties were game misconducts for Vincent Lecavalier and John Erskine. Tom Wilson was given a 10 minute misconduct, five for fighting and two minutes for instigating, while Schenn received a fighting major.
The most curious decision was the double minor for cross-checking and slashing on Wayne Simmonds, who clearly jumps Erskine as he's scrumming with Lecavalier. How he escaped a game misconduct over Lecavalier is a mystery.
You'll note that Steve Mason and Braden Holtby were in no rush to leave their creases and partake in the festivities.
