Bruins forward Frank Vatrano took a total cheap shot down behind the net by Vancouver Canuck Erik Gudbranson.
Even though Gudbranson has a good 3 inches on Bruin C Tim Schaller, he stepped in and went at it with the Canuck.

Shaller may not have won the fight, but this is what is badass about hockey. You can step in and protect your guy. Gudbranson got a 5 minute major and a game misconduct, which lead to 3 power play goals. So chalk it up as a win for the good guys.
