Avalanche forward Nazem Kadri laid the smack down Tuesday when Rangers' defenseman Ryan Lindgren laid a questionable hit on Joonas Donskoi.

With just under four minutes to play in the first period, Lindgren leveled Donskoi after he dumped the puck into the attacking zone from the red line. Lindgren appeared to make contact with Donskoi's head and sent the forward to the ice, injured. When the on-ice officials did not call a penalty on the play, Kadri tracked down Lindgren and challenged him to a fight.

Kadri threw at least a dozen bombs during the one-sided bout and bloodied Lindgren before the linesmen pulled the two apart. The veteran Avalanche center racked up 17 penalty minutes for his actions on the play which included a two-minute minor for instigating, a five-minute major for fighting and a 10-minute game misconduct for instigating as well.

As for Donskoi, he did not return to the game after Lindgren's hit and, similarly, Lindgren did not return to the game after his fight with Kadri.
