New Jersey Devils forward Tom Kostopoulos will be “all right” after getting knocked out in a fight with New York Islanders forward Matt Martin, Devils coach Peter DeBoer said.

Kostopoulos was KOed by Martin after the Islanders forward nailed Devils forward Stephen Gionta during the first period of Monday’s game at the Prudential Center. Martin caught Kostopoulos with a right hand to the chin, ending the scrap in a hurry.

But DeBoer told the New Jersey Star Ledger that Kostopoulos was talking and answering questions after the game.
