Video: Islanders’ Carkner fights Sabres’ Scott


It didn’t take long for the main event to erupt between the Buffalo Sabres and New York Islanders on Saturday.

The Islanders’ Matt Carkner took exception to a hit along the bench from the Sabres’ John Scott just prior to the midway mark of the first period. The two came together, squared off and began throwing some heavy punches before eventually tying each other up along the boards.
