John Scott didn't see that coming!

When the 6'7 " Sabres enforcer saw Islanders rookie, Justin Johnson, squaring up to him Sunday night he couldn't have been too worried about coming out on the losing side.

But he clearly hadn't reckoned with the 5' 10 " Johnson.

The 32-year old belayed his diminutive stature, giving as good as he got during the fight which broke out with 17 minutes left in the first period.

And as the two traded blows, Johnson even managed to knock down Scott with an impressive left hook direct to the jaw.

Even the commentators didn't give the 32-year old rookie much chance when the gloves were thrown down - comparing the pair to David and Goliath.

And Scott clearly couldn't believe the knock-down himself, laughing as he made his way to the sin bin.

Johnson was also on the winning side at the end of the game as the Islanders won out 4-3 courtesy of a shoot out win in Buffalo.
