Torey Krug and Andrew Shaw settled a score, and the referee seemed pretty fired up about it.

After the two players kicked off the latest meeting between the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens with a round of fisticuffs, referee Wes McCauley made the penalty call with much enthusiasm.

The fight, by the way, was a result of a hit levied on Shaw by Krug that cost the Canadiens defenseman 14 games due to concussion earlier this season.

Shaw took back the upper hand with this one.
