The Los Angeles Kings game against the New York Islanders got off to a very chippy start. Just under two minutes into the game they were already exchanging punches. Kings’ Jordan Nolan took on Matt Carkner of the Islanders in the bout. It is a good fight too. Not a lost of the usual squaring up just straight to punching.

Carkner looks like he gets the best of Nolan in the fight. Nolan has Carkner up against the boards but you can see Carkner land some good shots. Eventually, after Nolan gets Carkner in a head lock, Carkner throws Nolan to the ground and the fight ends. Both got the 5-minute fighting penalty.
