Michael Pezzetta was a real spark plug with the Habs last year. This season, it was a little tougher in the first few months, but he's become the good old Pezz again in recent weeks.

His celebration after his shootout goal against the Sabres is a great example.

The Habs actually had fun with the sequence on Twitter.




But going back to last year, there was one sequence that made all fans realize that Pezzetta was ready for anything on the ice. And that was when he threw down the gloves against Ryan Reaves, who is considered the strongman to beat in the NHL.

Here's the fight.


And Pezzetta, appearing on the Raw Knuckles Podcast, explains why he decided to throw down the gloves. Because we remember that he was the one who extended the invitation, not the other way around.

"This weekend was crazy. We play Detroit and I get my first point. The next game against Boston I get my first goal. And then we meet at Madison Square Gordon and I was like "f*** it", I have to fight the best in the NHL"


Of course, Pezzetta admits it felt different when he played the sequence in his head before the game, but he really doesn't seem to regret going. He even admits he never had so many messages after getting beaten up.
