Jordan Nolan and Chris Stewart were all over the scoresheet in the first period of Game 4 between the St. Louis Blues and the Los Angeles Kings. Stewart took a tripping minor 2 minutes in. Nolan opened the scoring with his first career playoff goal 3 minutes later.
Then, midway through the frame, the two locked horns behind the play for one of the best tilts of the postseason.
Some serious haymakers there.
It was a tough first period for the Blues, who were outshot 10-4 and surrendered the first goal, giving the Staples Center crowd plenty to cheer about in Game 4 of a series the Kings lead 3-0.
The fight came just after Kevin Shattenkirk had evened the game at one, and no doubt Stewart was trying to further quiet the LA fans with a win over Nolan. After he got Nolan's jersey over his head and the officials broke up the fight, the Blues' winger made his intentions known on the way to the box.
"Ssshhhh," he mouthed with his finger to his lips. "[Gretzky]-ing ssshh."
Unfortunately for the Blues, Dustin Brown put the Kings back up by a goal five minutes later.
