WATCH: Every FIGHT from the first 3 days of the 2020 NHL Playoffs

Some of us didn’t think we’d see any fights at all but only 3 days into the playoffs and we have seen fisticuffs from the onset of puck drop.

Justin Williams and Ryan Strome get into a tilt to welcome back the NHL and kickoff the playoffs:

Blake Wheeler fought Matthew Tkachuk in retaliation to a hit on Mark Scheifele that caused an injury that may have him miss the rest of the playoffs:

Who doesn’t love starting a game off with a good ol’ fight? Ferland and Foligno dropped the mitts one minute into the game after a center ice draw:

Just like in game one, another fight was due in game two despite it being short-lived between Tony DeAngelo and Jordan Martinook:


As a bonus the Capitals/Lightning game ended with a little scrum before going to Overtime and eventually a Shootout to settle the Round Robin game:

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
