As Flames forward Ryan Lomberg found out on Sunday, some fights are a little more fair than others.

Islanders forward Ross Johnston was the clear winner in his tilt against Lomberg, but that’s not overly surprising when you look at each player’s size.

Johnston had a distinct size advantage in this one, as he’s listed at 6-foot-5, 235 pounds, while Lomberg is listed at 5-foot-9, 187 pounds.

As you can tell from the video below, Johnson was able to land some serious right-handers during this bout:

Unfortunately for Lomberg, he had to go to the locker room for further evaluation, according to the Flames’ Twitter account. He did not return to the game.
