Bruins Respond to Cheap Shot with Fists & Goals

Vancouver Canucks defenseman Erik Gudbranson takes a questionable run at Boston Bruins centerman Frank Vatrano during tonight’s game and drills him from behind resulting in a 5 minute major for boarding.

Bruins Tim Schaller immediately responds and comes to his teammates aid and drops the gloves with Gudbranson.

Gudbranson receives 20 minutes in penalties and tossed out of the game:

  • 5 minute major – boarding
  • 5 minute major – fighting
  • 10 minute game misconduct

Bruins power play responds with 3 goals during the major to storm out to a 4-1 lead.

Bergeron has 2 assists in his season debut.

Vatrano has returned late in the first period.
