Islanders winger Matt Martin is the latest to learn that fighting Zdeno Chara is a terrible idea.
Martin and Chara dropped the gloves in the second period of Tuesday night's Bruins-Islanders matchup, and it pretty much went how you would expect. Chara handled Martin with ease, which isn't much of a surprise when Martin's punches fail to come anywhere near the 6-foot-9 defenseman.
Give Martin credit, though, for getting back up after Chara landed this blow:
