Seven fights in the last three games for the Bruins? It’s like Christmas for Fight Cub fans (both of you). Boston has now engaged in 45 jousts this fall and has climbed into the top 15 in the league overall (tied with the Dallas Stars, with whom the B’s brawled three times with earlier this year).

As usual, we give you the breakdowns, you leave a vote (and heckle us in the comments)…

Locker room reaction

  • Byron Bitz: “Teams are competing. A team like that, they know they aren’t going to make the playoffs and guys are battling hard. They don’t want to end the season on a bad note so they are battling. Every team is battling, whether for playoffs or just to finish the season right so the intensity of the game is pretty high.”
  • Zdeno Chara: “I knew that something would be happening, you know obviously, we had (Milan Lucic) in there and suddenly, (David) Krecji got pushed around so [I was] sticking up for my teammates.”

And now it’s your turn…
