|Shortly after the Habs score, these two drop 'em in the Isles zone a little in front of the net. Quintal is the aggresor and grab Cairns immediately. The momentum from them grabbing takes them towards the boards. Cairns is about to start off with a right that's semi-blocked by Quintal as Cairns stops mid-throw. Quintal then throws a right that misses. They each have their right hands free, and they're almost against the boards now. Eric tries to throw a straight right, and Quintal an upper-cut. Cairns doesn't connect, and Quintal hits the bottom of Cairns' arm. Quintal then connects with a solid right as Cairns is also throwing a punch that goes down into Quintal's chest. Quintal throws another quick one that hits helmet. Two more thrown by Quintal. First one grazes Cairns' face, the next goes over his head. In between the two Cairns threw a right that went no where. Quintal then throws an uppercut that didn't seem to hit anything or have any effect. Cairns then throws a monster overhand right that hits temple/helmet area. A moment of grappling and then another big overhand from Cairns that possibly grazes Quintal. Huge uppercut from Cairns now sends Quintal's head snapping back! Back to the overhand which misses as Quintal is straightening back up. A right hook from Cairns now also connects hard! Some more grappling and then a right uppercut by Cairns that misses. Then a right by Quintal as Cairns gets up the shoulder to block. A straight right by Cairns nails him! Cairns then shoulder-blocks the next right from Quintal and fires another straight right that tags Quintal again. Quick pulling and then Cairns hits some helmet. A body uppercut or something that looks like it from Quintal pushes Cairns back. Some more pulling and now Cairns pulls his right arm underneath his jersey. You can see his fight-strap is definitely tied down since half of it's up now. They both straighten up, Quintal throws a left hook that misses and Cairns tosses a big right that misses or possibly hits, but either way it hunches Quintal over since Cairns has his arm right above Quintal's shoulder. Linesmen then come in since Quintal is on his knee. Some words are exchanged on the way over to the box.|
