The Boston Bruins took it to the Montreal Canadiens last night for a sweet 4-1 win.
The star of the show was David Pastrnak who registered his second hat trick of the season against the Canadiens, however people are talking about something else today.
During the game, Canadiens forward Brendan Gallagher was absolutely attacked by Zdeno Chara and took a cross check to the face.
The duo ended up in the penalty box after the confrontation and now the NHL Department of Player Safety has decided a penalty wasn't enough.
Chara has been fined $5,000, the maximum allowable under the CBA, for Cross-checking Brendan Gallagher.
Check out the sequence in the video below:
