Zdeno Chara confirmed he, indeed, is a nice person Tuesday night.
The Islanders defenseman dropped the gloves with Flyers forward Zack MacEwen in New York’s 4-3 shootout win over Philadelphia at Wells Fargo Center in the third period.

The Flyers are in the midst of an awful nine-game losing streak, but still are above the Islanders in the Metropolitan Division standings.
