In an unexpected turn at the beginning of the New Jersey Devils vs. New York Rangers game, a huge brawl erupted just two seconds after the puck dropped, marking one of the most intense moments of the NHL season.

The fight was initiated by young forward Matt Rempe and the experienced Kurtis MacDermid. It seems Rempe, who was suspended in a recent game against the Devils, was eager for a confrontation.

The incident led to eight players being thrown out of the game. Such brawls are rare in the NHL, making this event particularly notable. Rempe might not be the top player on the ice, but his intimidating presence is undeniable.

The game continued with significant player ejections, making it intriguing to see how the teams would adjust.


Matt Rempe had played 3 games against the Devils and been ejected in all 3.
