Matt Calvert picked a fight with former teammate Rick Nash early in the third period of Friday's game.

It was Nash's first game in Columbus since he was traded by the Blues Jackets to the New York Rangers. Calvert was determined to fight with Nash after what he saw as a "gutless" shove from Nash to goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky earlier in the contest. Nash had gotten frustrated with the Blue Jackets netminder after he was whacked a couple times and Bobrovsky knocked Nash's stick away when he went to pick it up after play was called dead. In addition to a fighting major, Calvert got two minutes for roughing.
