Apologies for the video-of-the-TV highlight, but when Charlie McAvoy gets in a fight, you gotta do what you gotta do.

Props to McAvoy for not backing down, even though Pierre-Luc Dubois kind of suckered him at the beginning there. Dubois is 19, McAvoy will be 20 next week. Not sure if this is the youngest fight in Bruins history, but it’s gotta be up there.
EDIT: McAvoy would assist on Danton Heinen’s goal, the Bruins’ 4th, giving him the Gordie Howe Hat Trick.
