Rangers fan arrested after knocking out Lightning fan with vicious sucker-punch

The New York Rangers’ eight-game winning streak at Madison Square Garden came to an end on Thursday night when they fell to the brink of elimination with a 3-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

At the final buzzer, a scrum ensued on the ice with Bolts captain Steven Stamkos and young Rangers star forward Alexis Lafreniere throwing punches. At least that was a fair fight.

Rangers fans exited MSG in frustration after the loss and one of them took things too far. As a Lightning fan celebrated his team’s victory behind him, he was viciously attacked.
