New York Islanders forward Matt Martin immediately called the New Jersey Devils training staff to come out on the ice after knocking out Devils forward Tom Kostopoulos in a first period fight during Monday night's game in Newark.
Kostopoulos challenged Martin after Martin decked his Devils teammate Steve Gionta. Martin dropped Kostopoulos with only three punches. Kostopoulos stayed down for a while before being helped off the ice. Although Kostopoulos did not return to the game, he was talking and answering questions afterwards.
Both players got five minute majors for fighting. The Islanders won the game 3-1.

The New York Islanders will not be sellers this year, and we as fans should be happy with that. It will make for a very quiet day, but the fact that there is no fire-sale in Uniondale is great.
Art Staple has just tweeted that additional talks with Evgeni Nabokov's agent about an extension are ongoing, but nothing final as of yet.
