With the Vancouver Canucks leading 4-1 in the third period of game two against the Calgary Flames, a line brawl broke out, featuring fights between Matt Stajan and Brad Richardson, and Derek Dorsett and Deryk Engelland, and scrums involving all other players on the ice.
See what went down after the jump.
Tensions had been rising to a boiling point all game, and things looked certain to get out of hand eventually. Deryk Engelland was given 42 minutes in penalties for his role in the melee, while Dan Hamhuis looked like a pretty clear 3rd man in.
It would be pretty surprising to see no supplemental discipline come from this, especially since Engelland was given two games misconducts, according to the game sheet and Hamhuis jumped in to an altercation already taking place. But we’ll have to wait and see what happens in the coming days.
