Percolating emotions briefly bubbled over for Lightning captain Vinny Lecavalier midway through the third period Sunday.

With 7:49 left and Tampa Bay trailing by two goals, Lecavalier jumped Pittsburgh's Evgeni Malkin from behind and landed some punches on the Penguins' all-star center. Then during the ensuing scrum, Lecavalier landed one more punch before the two were separated. For his actions, Lecavalier was handed a four-minute roughing call along with a 10-minute misconduct penalty, which ended his afternoon.
