SJ - July 29, 2020

Florida Panthers forward Brian Boyle and Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Mikhail Sergachev welcomed hockey back on Wednesday afternoon by trading punches during an exhibition game.

The NHL, like the NBA, is resuming their league in a bubble and running a few exhibition games prior to getting back to the games that count.  The players clearly aren't waiting around for the games count.

It wasn't a major brawl, and while both players did land a few punches, neither guy hit the other with a huge punch.

With that said, it is really good to see things getting back to normal on the ice.  It almost brings a tear to the eye.
