The fight breakdown

After seeing what appeared to be a vicious check from behind in real time, you understand Chris Stewart wanting to have a little piece of Cole Bardreau. But for with Ross Johnston on the ice it was only a matter of time for the two to meet up and have it out, with already sitting in the box earlier in the game for roughing. Johnston comes into the melee and grabs Stewart (who seemed to be looking for Ross) and it's go time

They hug up immediately and separate from the pack of players, and then the gloves come off over the top. Stewart fires off a right first before Johnston comes back with a couple of his own. Johnston then tries to go under Stewart's left arm as they skate away from the boards. Both guys have pretty good control of the others arms and so the struggle is real in this one. Not many big landings before they go down to the ice and the linesmen pile on.
