They start pushing and shoving along the boards and drop the gloves. Both fighters are wearing visors, but don't remove their helmets.

Iginla rips Ballard's helmet off as Ballard is throwing rights. Iginla connects with an overhand right as Ballard attempts a body shot, but gets tied up.

Behind the play the sticks and gloves literally come flying down ice as the two shed their helmets and square off, skating down ice themselves. Guerin grabs ahold of Ballard along the boards and throws two rights and then the two grapple along the glass. Ballard tries a couple of locked-out rights as Guerin connects with two overhand rights to the back of Ballard's head before they fall to the ice.

@ARI ANA Corey Perry
Voted winner:  Keith Ballard   (89.7%) - Voted rating: 5.2
Derek Morris challenges Perry along the boards and players quickly step in and separate the two. Away from the action, Ballard and Perry talk a little bit before dropping the gloves, shedding the helmets, and squaring off. Perry grabs on as both players miss with overhand rights. Ballard switches hands and throws three lefts that come up short as Perry is able to turn his head away from the punches. Perry comes back with a right before he loses his balance and goes down to a knee. Perry slips again and Ballard throws two lefts that knock Perry back down to the ice. Perry gets back up as Ballard lands two rights and then Perry misses over the top with a right hook while the two spin around. Ballard grabs Perry by his jersey and throws him to the ice and the linesmen quickly rush in. Other Penalties: Derek Morris and Todd Fedoruk each received an unsportsmanlike conduct.
