Watch: Pacioretty, Vesey square off in unlikely Game 6 fight

Adam Hunger / USA Today Sports

Two surprising combatants engaged in a round of fisticuffs early in Game 6.

Montreal Canadiens captain Max Pacioretty and New York Rangers rookie Jimmy Vesey dropped the gloves after exchanging checks after the whistle Saturday. This after Alexander Radulov had sprayed Henrik Lundqvist with a little snow while crashing the net.

Both Pacioretty and Vesey, who remain in search of their first goals of the series, earned seven minutes in the penalty box for their transgressions.
