After an offensive outburst in the first half, the Los Angeles Kings sustained their four-goal lead, 5-1, against the St. Louis Blues in the second period of Monday's second round playoff game.
The game's intensity stayed at a high level in the second period, with both teams refusing to stop fighting — literally. The match looked extra chippy when the Blues' Carlo Colaiacovo and the Kings' Dustin Brown started fighting. Brown was pegged for two minutes in the penalty box for charging, while Colaiacovo was given two minutes as well for roughing. Both teams were tagged for four penalties each in the second period.
