WATCH: Byfuglien drops Reaves with reverse hit

Not much has gone right for the Winnipeg Jets in Game 2 against the Vegas Golden Knights.

Dustin Byfuglien is one guy who can always be counted on to provide a spark.

The intimidating blueliner has been a physical force throughout the postseason, including in Game 1 of the Western Conference Final when he dropped opposing forward Alex Tuch.

Tuch is listed at six-foot-four and 222 pounds, but that didn’t stop Byfuglien from shrugging him off with a quality reverse hit.

Big Buff was back at it again in Game 2, this time being involved in a collision with one of the Golden Knights’ other most physical forwards.

Ryan Reaves is listed at 225 pounds and had an interesting conversation with a reporter regarding Byfuglien prior to Game 2:

Reporter: Is Dustin Byfuglien the strongest player in the league?

Reaves: I’m the strongest player in the league. (laughs)

Reporter: Is he the second-strongest?

Reaves: He might be, yeah.

Reaves got a taste of just how strong Byfuglien really is when he went to hit the Winnipeg blueliner during Game 2 on Monday evening:

Only two games into the Western Conference Final and we’ve already got two crushing reverse hits from Byfuglien.
