A few moments after Nick Suzuki doubled the lead for the Canadiens in the middle of the second period, Arber Xhekaj reverted to his good old habits.

Indeed, the 22-year-old defenseman dropped the gloves for the first time since his call-up to the major league. He did not hesitate to go after a giant, as Ross Johnston stands 6'5" and weighs nearly 235 pounds.

Clearly, the sheriff is back and he is not afraid to confront anyone who wishes to bother his teammates wearing number 72.

Solid! We love to see Xhekaj start to physically impose himself like that again!
