After what is seemingly a lock to be the most unusual period of the Bruins' season, the B's lead the Canadiens, 6-4. While there was plenty of scoring in the period, the highlight of the period was undubtedly the goalie fight. A rare occurrence that is seemingly becoming more common throughout the league, Carey Price and Tim Thomas dropped the gloves while all of the skaters on the ice were brawling in the corner of the Canadiens zone at 12:36. Price undoubtedly got the better of Thomas in the fight, but relented when the B's netminder fell to the ice. Thomas recently discussed goalie fights with WEEI.com, saying he didn't know if he could see himself getting in one because he tries to play honest. Perhaps he didn't expect himself in playing in a game as crazy as Wednesday night's. The rest of the play's brawling left the Bruins with six players in the penalty box and five Habs in the bin. Steven Kampfer, Brad Marchand, Shawn Thornton, Zdeno Chara, Patrice Bergeron, Mark Recchi represented the Bruins in the box, and the Canadiens scored on the ensuing power play. There was plenty of offense in the period, as Brian Gionta opened the scoring just 25 seconds in. The Bruins got two goals from Milan Lucic, with Michael Ryder and Adam McQuaid scoring. P.K. Subban, Yannick Weber and David Desharnais also scored for the Habs.
