You just knew something questionable would happen between the Montreal Canadiens and Toronto Maple Leafs Wednesday night at the Air Canada Centre.
The latest play involved Canadiens defenceman Josh Gorges and Leafs right wing Mike Brown at 19:22 of the first period.
Brown hit Gorges from the side and drove the Habs blue-liner into the boards. The hit caused a skirmish between the two teams. Brown received a five-minute checking-from-behind major, and a game misconduct, drawing the ire of Leafs coach Randy Carlyle.
