Over the last few years the Blackhawks and Kings have developed a bit of a rivalry. The two teams have battled for not only the Western Conference, but they have also taken turns winning the Stanley Cup.

That kind of competitiveness undoubtedly brings some dislike between the teams. Some of that boiled over Monday night during their game at the United Center.

With the Kings up 2-1 late in the second period, Los Angeles didn’t like the way the Blackhawks charged the net. One thing lead to another and bodies were falling to the ice and gloves were coming off.

The scrum resulted in both Anze Kopitar and Marcus Kruger going to the penalty box for 2-minute roughing penalties. Neither team was able to score with 4-on-4 play.

The Kings would hold onto their lead and head into the second intermission up a goal.
