The Komets were up 3-1 when Muskegon scored 5-on-3 to cut it to 3-2. Immediately after the goal, Komets goaltender Nick Boucher skated toward the corner and said something to Komets defenseman Kevin Bertram who then hit Boucher twice in the facemask with his gloved fist. The linesman had to step between them.
Bertram skated to the bench, and the incident was completely over. No one seemed to say anything to either Bertram or Boucher, and Bertram took his next shift on turn. He didn't appear to say anything to Boucher during his shift.
