Bruins Chris Wagner and Lightning Barclay Goodrow got a second chance to fight Saturday and didn't waste a moment of it. 

Bruins Fans were a little quiet early in the first period of Saturday night's Tampa Bay Lightning vs Boston Bruins game. The Lightning scored two shorthanded goals,so Chris Wagner found a way to get the home fans energized.

Wagner and Lightning forward Barclay Goodrow wanted to fight almost nine minutes into the game but the referees separated the two before any action started. Wagner had delivered a big hit on Bolts defenseman Mikhail Sergachev earlier in the shift. Goodrow and Wagner were sent to the penalty box for matching unsportsmanlike conduct minor penalties, but soon after exiting the sin bin, they dropped their gloves for an entertaining bout.

Wagner beat Goodrow  with a huge right that almost knocked his head off, at that point his bucket went flying and the refs jumped in. This fight was Wagner's third of the season and first since Feb. 15. Both were sent back to the box of shame, each with 5 minutes for fighting.

Although the Boston Bruins played a solid first period against the Tampa Bay Lightning, they entered the dressing room for the first intermission staring at a 2-0 deficit. While the Bruins wouldn’t light the lamp, they actually out-shot Tampa Bay in the first period, 14-5.

The Lightning lead the Bruins 3-0 in the 2nd period.
