WATCH: Matt Remby acts out again and gets fired for obnoxious gesture

WATCH: Matt Remby acts out again and gets fired for obnoxious gesture

New York Rangers tough man Matt Rempe went a little further by getting an elbow into the face of the rival New Jersey Devils on Monday night at Madison Square Garden.

The 6'8″ giant was extremely clumsy by raising his left elbow too high when tackling Jonas Siegenthaler late in the second half. The Swiss defenseman collapsed on the ice, clutching his face.

A ruckus was created and Rimpy, accompanied by an official, took the opportunity to salute Curtis McDiarmid, who had every intention of throwing the gloves at the Giant. They did not have a chance since the Rangers youngster was sent off from the game as well as receiving a major five-minute penalty.

It's a comment that can wait for a man who has quickly established himself as a fan favorite. Remby was involved in numerous fights during his first 10 National League games, which often had the effect of enthralling spectators.

Despite this tougher episode, the Blueshirts won 3 to 1.

Mika Zibanejad scored his first five-on-five goal since Dec. 23, which seemed to take a lot of pressure off his shoulders. The Swede achieved his 20th success of the season with the help of a beautiful feint and an effective backhand shot.

Erik Gustafsson and Vincent Trocheck (empty net) added more for Rangers, while Simon Nemec prevented Jonathan Quick from scoring by kicking the goal in the final minutes of play.

Jake Allen was not in a Devils uniform. Instead, it was Kaapo Kahkonen who made his first start for New Jersey, blocking 23 of the 25 shots thrown his way.
