This one might be a little rough for Bruins backers to watch again, but at least its gives you an even better idea of Johnny Boychuk’s toughness.

Early in tonight’s Bruins game in Montreal, Boychuk missed an open-ice hit on P.K. Subban. Ryan White took exception at the attempt and immediately challenged Boychuk. White definitely came out way ahead on points in this bout, but Boychuk at least hung in there.

Needless to say, White’s victory set the tone for tonight’s game.
