Last night the Boston Bruins hosted the Florida Panthers in game two of their best of seven, with the Bruins at the time holding a 1-0 series lead.

The Bruins were hoping to take a 2-0 series lead, but the Panthers would not allow it as they put on a clinic in the third period and defeated the Bruins 6-3.

Despite all the scoring, the third period got a little out of control, and saw multiple players from both teams get ejected from the game.

A total of 7 players in the final 2 minutes got ejected from the game, and the referee's began losing control.




Players are passionate and fights do tend to happen quite a bit in a playoff game, and with time running out, players want to set the tone for the next game and let the other team know that it's going to be a battle.

With only 3 seconds left on the clock last game, it got so out of hand that the referee's just called the game:
