Watch: DeKeyser Lowers the Boom on Palat and Zetterberg Finds Datsyuk's Missing Tooth

The violence is escalating in Game Two of the Lightning-Red Wings series and there's still plenty of hockey left to be played.

This big hit by Kenny DeKeyser on Ondrej Palat drew the ire of the Lightning. There was no call on the play.

Jonathan Drouin and Riley Sheahan got coincidental roughing minors in the ensuing melee.

Here's another angle of the hit:

A few minutes earlier in the period, Pavel Datsyuk and Victor Hedman got into a skirmish along the boards and after the dust settled, Henrik Zetterberg ended up scooping up Datsyuk's missing tooth as the Russian looked on from the penalty box. Oh, yeah. PLAYOFF HOCKEY, BABY!

The Bolts lead 2-1 after two and are trying to take a 2-0 lead in the series.

Update: Palat and Datsyuk are both back in the game.
