Watch: Steven Stamkos, Evgeni Malkin drop gloves in star fight

Steven Stamkos Evgeni Malkin

Two of the best players in the league dropped gloves on Wednesday night for a shocking fight.

During the third period between the Tampa Bay Lightning and Pittsburgh Penguins, Evgeni Malkin and Steven Stamkos got annoyed with each other and fought. Malkin got Stamkos with his stick, and then Stamkos retaliated with a cross-check. The two ended up fighting briefly before being broken up:

Just how rare was the fight? According to Hockey Fights, that was Stamkos’ fifth fight and Malkin’s ninth.

Teammate Kris Letang said that Malkin is good for one fight a year, and that was it.

Stamkos didn’t think much of the fight either, saying it was the product of them trading slashes and being annoyed with each other.
