The New York Rangers started Game 2 of their Eastern Conference Finals series against the Florida Panthers with both a figurative and literal bang.

After dropping Game 1 to the visiting Panthers on Wednesday at Madison Square Garden, New York got on the board just four minutes into Friday's action when Vincent Trocheck took a sublime pass from Adam Fox to beat Florida netminder Sergei Bobrovsky.

And that's when things got violent.

While Fox and Trocheck celebrated the early goal, Florida's Carter Verhaeghe was retaliating against New York's Alexis Lafrenière for an open-ice hit that helped clear a path for the centering pass that led to the goal.

'[Matthew] Tkachuk's got Trocheck pinned down, Lafrenière jumps into the fray,' ESPN color commentator Ray Ferraro exclaimed amid the chaos. 'There's three or four wrestling matches going on! This is a perfect New York start.'
