Video: Ekblad & Mantha Fight to End Game 5 vs Capitals/Panthers

The Florida Panthers were once again the comeback kids as they came back from being down 3-0 in Game 5 vs. the Washington Capitals. The Caps were frustrated to say the least as they pulled the goalie and were doing whatever they could to close the gap. 

Tempers got heated at the end of the game and we saw a rare Stanley Cup Playoffs fight between Washington's Anthony Mantha and Florida's Aaron Ekblad. Considering the injury history of Ekblad, there's no doubt the Panthers would prefer he kept his gloves on but good for him to sticking up for himself to finish the hockey game. All Mantha was doing was releasing the frustration of blowing a three-goal lead.

A couple of big boys going at it, while it wasn't much of a scrap, decision goes to Mantha on this one:
