Jarome Iginla may have won over Bruins fans early this season.

In his first game donning Boston's black and gold, Iginla scrapped with Tampa Bay defenceman Radko Gudas in the Bruins' 3-1 win Thursday.

Radko had leveled Iginla near the boards before the midway point of the second period. The hit was clean, but the new Bruins forward responded with some fisticuffs.

The six-foot-one, 210-pound Iginla landed a number of solid shots to the face of the five-foot-11, 192-pound Gudas. After the fierce bout, home fans gave Iginla a standing ovation to and from the penalty box.

Iginla's previous fight came last season, also at the TD Garden, while he was a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins. He tangled with former Bruins winger Nathan Horton.

Iginla signed a 1-year deal with the Bruins in July, just four months after the Penguins swooped in and acquired the 36-year-old from the Calgary Flames in late March to bolster their playoff push.
