Video: Brown rocks Tavares with open ice hit, drops the gloves with Mayfield
Tempers flared between the New York Islanders and Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday.
Lightning forward J.T. Brown rocked Islanders star John Tavares with an open-ice hit early in the second period. As you might expect, there was a response. Scott Mayfield skated right after Brown, and the two dropped the gloves for a lengthy fight inside the Bolts’ zone.
Mayfield was also given an instigator penalty and a misconduct.
Meanwhile, the Islanders trailed the Lightning 4-0 at the end of two periods.
