I can’t believe we’ve had to wait until February for our first goalie fight but here it is. You wouldn’t call the Islanders and the Penguins a fight-breeding rivalry but it was at the end of tonight’s game. Rick DiPietro took a shot at Pittsburgh’s Matt Cooke and Brent Johnson took exception. When ensued was what I call a two-hit fight. Johnson hit DiPietro and DiPietro hit the floor. Video and GIF after the jump.
