Video: Lafferty and Smith Drop the Mitts in Crazy Fight

The New York Rangers and Pittsburgh Penguins are getting sick and tired of playing each other and it's starting to show. Thursday night was their 8th matchup of the season and the Pens have won six of them, and you may be able to chalk down a fight win for Penguins forward Sam Lafferty after his bout with Rangers defenseman Brendan Smith. 

The two dropped the gloves off the faceoff in the second period on Thursday as Smith was trying to rally his team from two goals down. He landed a heavy left early, but Lafferty made his way back into the fight and brought some noise later.

Here's the spirited scrap as if these two meet in the playoffs, get ready for some intense hockey:
