Chicago's Duncan Keith is one of the best defensemen in the NHL, but in the second period of Game 3 on Tuesday he let his emotions get the best of him and lost his cool during an exchange with Kings forward Jeff Carter.

After Carter took a swipe with his stick at Keith's hand (as Keith bent down to pick up his lost glove), Keith responded by coming up behind him and delivering a one-handed stick swing to his face.

He earned a double-minor for high-sticking while Carter went to the Kings locker room for a short period of time.

Keith attempted to apologize to Carter.
