Bruins winger Shawn Thornton and Carolina defenseman Tim Conboy engaged in a short, but spirited tussle early in the third period where the post-match trash talking seemed to take longer than the actual bout.

The expert's take

The not-so expert's take

  • Chris Forsberg, Boston.com: Conboy might have been trying to rebound from that first effort, but he's a little too overzealous and falls to the ice after missing a haymaker. Stuart pounces and lands some solid rights before the refs tear them apart.
