The incident occurred with 1:36 remaining in the third period of the Rangers’ 8-3 romp over the Flyers on Thursday night. Morin and Lemieux immediately dropped the gloves, with the former being whistled for a cross-checking penalty while both received five minutes for fighting.
Morin, 25, has been held without a point in five games this season and through 14 career contests. He was a first-round pick (11th overall) in 2013.
Philadelphia has been outscored 17-3 by New York in the teams’ last two meetings. The Flyers have dropped four in a row and are 4-9-1 in March.
