Highlight of the Night

There was only a single play on the night where a New York Islanders player did anything remotely positive.

That moment came at the start of the second period when Matt Martin asked Bruins captain Zdeno Chara to dance.

Matt Martin tried his best against Chara. Unfortunately for Martin, Chara had the high ground. While Martin isn’t a small man, standing 6’3″ and weighing 220lbs, Zdeno Chara is 6’9″ and 250 lbs.

Chara landed a good punch on Martin that sent the Islanders forward to the ice. But with Martin being an experienced tussler he was right back up and tossing haymakers of his own.

Too bad there was that aforementioned size difference. Not a single one of Martin’s punches landed. He just couldn’t reach Chara.

See the best part of the tussle here.

It was a good attempt by Martin to get his teammates into the game. Too bad it did absolutely nothing. I’d be gutted if I were Martin.
