Video- Nick Foligno Fight With Nathan Beaulieu

via Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette,

There were questions after the game about whether Beaulieu should have returned to the game. But coach Michel Therrien said the defenceman went through the NHL’s concussion protocol between the second and third periods.

“I wasn’t surprised (to see him back),” said Subban. “He was fine on the ice. I think kind of when he got hit he was kind of already going back, falling back, He was fine on the ice, he was flying out there.”

Weise said Foligno showed restraint when he held up on a punch after tagging Beaulieu with a solid right.

“That’s pretty good respect there,” said Weise. “Foligno’s a hard-nosed guy. I think he kind of let up on him when he went down there. He’s a little more undercover tough than a lot of guys think. I fought him a few times, he’s a tough guy.

“That was huge for Bo stepping in there. He’s done that a couple of times this year,” added Weise. “That gets a huge boost and a lot of respect in our locker room.”
