New Boston Bruins winger Garnet Hathaway has had a smooth transition into his Bruins career since being acquired – along with defenseman Dmitry Orlov – from the Washington Capitals on Feb. 23.
In fact, this past Saturday, Hathaway found himself in a similar situation he was in back on Nov. 11 when he dropped the gloves with Tampa Lightning winger Pat Maroon in a game between the Capitals and the Lightning.
Note: Thank you to reader and Twitter friend Jenn Passero (@osRavensCaps), for alerting this scribe to that fight above.
That fight however manifested from a headshot that Hathaway’s former Capitals teammate, Nicolas Aube-Kubel, laid a blind-side headshot on Lightning defenseman Cal Foote. On Saturday, his second fight with Maroon this season was the result of Maroon and his team wanting to set a tempo and snap out of the recent funk they’ve been in. As he was back in November, Hathaway was ready to be there for his new teammates and once he saw his – to this point – regular linemate Jakub Lauko wrestling Lightning forward Ross Colton, Hathaway entered the fray.
Well that's one way to start a hockey game. 😳🥊 pic.twitter.com/jiJ5W97Kwo
