Habs defenseman Alexander Romanov had to throw the gloves in front of Blackhawks Ryan Carpenter after hitting Sam Lafferty with a solid but legal check.
The incident occurred in the second half of Thursday’s game between the two teams.
Romanov first delivered a solid shoulder smash that sent Lafferty spinning, and immediately found himself grappling with Carpenter.
The fight didn’t lead to much: Carpenter received a misconduct penalty and another two minutes for instigating the fight.
The CH took the lead 2-1 a few seconds later.
