Tonight's game between the Tampa Bay Lightning has become one the most dynamic this season to watch. This can be largely attributed to a massive fight that broke out after one player made an illegal head check, negating a goal.

Kulikov Causes Fighting Frenzy On The Ice



During the second period, Dmitry Kulikov of the Panthers trucked right into the head of Conor Sheary of the Lightning during a goal attempt. This negated a goal and earned a match penalty for the Florida player.

"Major penalty on Kulikov for this hit on Sheary negates the goal and it stays 3-0."




However, the response did not stop there, as it ultimately resulted in a massive fight between a large number of players from both teams.

"The Panthers score and all hell breaks loose 😳👊"


Fans Split On Kulikov Hit Reaction



While it is clearly a massive check to the head, fans are split on whether this was intentional or not. Many fans are skeptical of this being an accident based on the Panthers having built a reputation as an abrasive team. However, others see this situation as an unfortunate mistake.
