In the third period, Samuel Montembeault rushed out of his zone to stop Rodrigues from getting a breakaway. The player collided with the goalie, who fell heavily on the ice.
The incident didn't sit well with Arber Xhekaj. He immediately went after Rodrigues, who remained hidden behind a referee to avoid fighting him.
Watch the whole incident here:

Xhekaj seemed determined to avenge his goalie. If the ref hadn't been there, Rodrigues probably would've left the ice with a few bruises.
Do you think the referee should've let Xhekaj get to Rodrigues?
