Things got heated in the Chicago Blackhawks’ crease on Tuesday night, with goalie Corey Crawford trading some punches with St. Louis Blues forward Robby Fabbri.
Chicago Blackawks goalie Corey Crawford is making it known to the St. Louis Blues that his crease belongs to him, and him alone.
Crawford traded punches with Blues forward Robby Fabbri, whom he had just stoned twice from point-blank, with just over eight minutes left in the second period in Game 4 of their first round series in Chicago.
The players were followed by their teammates into the corner behind Crawford's net, where several other scrums broke out and resulted in a few trips to the penalty box.
For St. Louis, Fabbri recieved two minutes for goaltender interference, Alex Pietrangelo was tagged for slashing and Kevin Shattenkrik got two for spearing. For his efforts, Crawford got two for roughing, the first PIM of his 79 game postseason career, served by forward Richard Panik, while forward Andrew Ladd visiting the penalty box for roughing.
