Henrik Lundqvist may not have witnessed any fights during the Rangers’ 3-0 win over the Carolina Hurricanes Tuesday night, but he inadvertendly caused one among fans at Madison Square Garden immediately after the victory.

Lundqvist, who recorded his first shutout of the season with 33 saves, came out onto the ice after the final buzzer to acknowledge his first-star honors. As per his occassional custom, the goalie launched his stick into a throng of collectible-craving fans, which instigated a minor skirmish when no one would let go.

The flailing stick landed in one man’s chest, but others immediately pounced on the ends of the valuable piece of hardware.

Ushers were forced to break up the minutes-long fracas, and after no one could agree on a winner, the arena staff removed it from their grasp and returned it to the locker room.

Though no penalties were called, it was a clear instance of unsportsmanlike conduct. Not to mention a lesson learned.
