For the first time in a long time, the Maple Leafs-Canadiens rivalry had some bite to it.

The battles between these two teams have been a little stale over the last few seasons, which isn’t surprising considering Saturday’s win by Montreal was the 13th in a row over Toronto.

But even though the Habs continued their dominant ways over the Leafs, the two teams showed some genuine dislike for each other.

There was the simultaneous fights that occurred between Michael McCarron and Matt Martin, and Bobby Farnham and Frederik Gauthier, which you can watch by clicking here.

Also, there was another incident involving Zach Hyman and Carey Price in the second period (top).

Hyman entered the Montreal zone and cut to the net with significant speed. As he’s heading to the Montreal crease, he’s pushed by Canadiens defenseman Alexei Emelin, which forces the Leafs forward into Price.
