It was not a great night for the Washington Capitals Thursday as they took on the New York Islanders. The Islanders laid an 8-4 beating on the Capitals and towards the end of the game frustration started to boil over.
Zdeno Chara took it upon himself to give Capitals fans something to cheer about and dropped the gloves with Islanders forward Matt Martin in the final 5 seconds of the third period.
Matt Martin had a hard time standing up, as one would with a 6’9 monster holding on to you. Chara gets a few good shots in before the tilt ends and they each gave eachother a tap as a show of respect following the tilt.
