Yeah, cause if it was the regular season, their stats would matter, heh.

Fights do sometimes break out in the playoffs, and can make a series absolutely epic. Remember the Avs/Wings? Which is an example in and of itself of the need for fighting in the league.

Also, it's Boston. The uniform gives you the right to fisticuffs.
