This. Is. Awesome!

Hockey Fight Live is on the air!

The Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens squared off across the street from the Boston Garden tonight (that is to say they played in the TD Bank North Garden Shawmut Fleet Center).  The B's won, 8-6.  But this baby was all about the fighting.

Tim Thomas (27 saves) versus Carey Price (26 saves).  Two of the best goalies in the NHL - two of the top five in the Eastern Conference, and they allowed FOURTEEN GOALS?

This is the NHL highlight version of the game:

That's Jack Edwards and Andy Brickley with the call on NESN.

OK, now to the fun stuff.  The Bruins and Habs have long hated each other, so it's refreshing to see them mixing it up a bit.  Even the goalies got into it - albeit half-heartedly.

For my money, give me Johnny Boychuk smacking Jaroslav Spacek around like a rag doll.

At the very least, Johnny Boychuk is my favorite non-Ranger.  How can I not like a guy with a great hockey name who wears fifty-five?  It's a match made in hockey heaven!

I digress.  Good times in Beantown tonight.

There are plenty more highlights over at Hockey Fights.
