After throwing a high hit on New York Islanders defenseman Scott Mayfield, Zack MacEwen dropped the gloves with Zdeno Chara.
Both Chara and MacEwen are known for being tough customers, so this certainly was an entertaining one to watch. Although MacEwen was able to get a couple good shots in, the 6-foot-9 Chara was the clear winner of this bout.
Chara likely received even more respect from his Islanders teammates after this fight. As for MacEwen, he also deserves credit for taking on such an imposing figure and handling himself pretty well until the end.
The Islanders would go on to defeat the Flyers in the shootout by a 4-3 final score. With this, they have improved to 13-13-6, while the Flyers are now 13-18-8.
