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.

The fight breakdown

Matt Calvert finishes the check hard and then looks to give Victor Hedman a tap (read as chop) on the back of the leg as they both skate away from the play. Hedman turns around and in what would end up being Calvert's second fight of the night (the first against Erik Cernak)

Hedman is the first to fire off some punches that go behind the much smaller Calvert's head. Calvert pivots to comes from underneath landing a couple before Hedman tries re-position his grip. Hedmans left arm ends up behind Calvert's head and then it turns into more of a wrestling match as Hedman falls and Calvert lands on top of him.
