The Break Down

The Tampa Bay Lighting goaltender, Andrei Vasilevskiy freezes the puck as Matt Calvert comes in close and engages with Erik Cernak. The two go chest to chest before beginning to joust a bit and then the gloves come off.

Cernak throws a right first and Calvert ducks to avoid that before another right from Cernak misses the mark and they tie up. Cernak gets off one more quick right underneath before they fall to the ice. Calvert briefly regains his footing and looks to continue the fight but the linesmen step in as Cernak rises again.
