Rick Nash And Evgeni Malkin Engage In An Unlikely Fight (Video)

The NHL preseason is a time for bubble players to grind it out for roster spots while the superstars often watch from the press box above.  Perhaps someone should try telling that to Evgeni Malkin and Rick Nash.

Two of the league’s elite players made an appearance in Saturday night’s game between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Columbus Blue Jackets, and they weren’t just going through the motions out there.  In what turned out to be a fight-filled affair between the two teams, the headline bout featured two of the league’s most prolific goal scorers.

Take a look.

Nash likely thought that a fight against Malkin would be a walk in the park, but unless your idea of a “walk in the park” involves being jerseyed and punched in the face a few times, that was far from the case.
