Starts off the faceoff after both teams pick up the physical game. They toss the mits and grab ahold. Looks like Vandermeer lands an early shot and Barch lands a light upper cut. They each tie up and Vandermeer throws rights landing while Barch is throwing lefts grazing. Barch lands a good solid left then Vandermeer lands a nice right. They graple some more and Barch falls to the ice screaming at the linesmen to not break up the fight, but they do and it's over.

Theo Peckham vs James Neal
The camera pans and Neal is throwing them at Peckham along the benches. He gets in tight and twists around and Peckham gets the upperhand and starts throwing to the back of Neal's head. No damage by either and the linesmen jump in to break up.
Neal got the boot for instigating with a visor.
