3rd Period - 19:28•2002-2003 PostseasonCairns, at the end of a long shift, wanted someone. He's poking at Chara who stands and stares until Neil comes off the bench and buzzing in. The refs tried to stop it, but they both got loose. Neil gets in first while Magoo had Cairns' jersey. Neil lands about 3 or 4 good shots and Cairns is throwing a lot of rights, but is in slow motion and most miss. Cairns finally gets some muscle behind a punch and gets a good right that connects. Neil then throws a few more that come up short. Cairns gets Neils helmet off and throws a couple more landing a soft right. Neil finishes with 1 more weak shot. The refs come in and Cairns is gasping for air.
