We witnessed a scene during Saturday night's game that went unnoticed but was anything but ordinary. Arber Xhekaj played the role of the big brother with Cole Caufield, without having to defend him.

In fact, it was quite the opposite. The sheriff allowed Cole to defend himself. It's quite rare to see this, and it was well done without any escalation.

We're used to seeing Arber defend his teammates himself, but in this sport, where emotions can run high, it's good to take matters into your own hands.


A small gesture that may seem trivial but brought a smile to many Canadiens fans, especially since it was against a long-time rival!
