The Pittsburgh Penguins hosted the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday and a huge hit by Jets defenseman Nathan Beaulieu on Penguins forward Brock McGinn sparked a scrap between Beaulieu and Penguins forward Brian Boyle. All Boyle was trying to do was stick up for his line mate and after a few punches, seemed to have hurt his left shoulder.
The Penguins forward came up lame in the fight and was seen leaving the ice and heading down the tunnel in pain and pissed off. The great news is Boyle returned for the second period as the Penguins dodged a bullet. They’ve dealt with a wide range of injuries this season and are glad they’ll have their depth forward in the lineup moving forward Boyle has been busy fighting and showing management he’s willing to do whatever it takes to stay in the lineup. Here’s the scrap from Sunday as Boyle takes exception to a dirty hit from behind and the clip of his fight earlier in the week against the Ottawa Senators:

The Penguins did lose Teddy Blueger on Sunday after the forward was hit by Jets defenseman Brenden Dillon and was left a bloody mess and left the game.
