WATCH: Canucks, Flames game starts with fight off opening face-off
The Vancouver Canucks and Calgary Flames needed only two seconds before they started fighting with each other on Wednesday night.
It took them two seconds to remind everybody of that fact on Wednesday night.
That is pretty much the only reason Derek Dorsett and Micheal Ferland start the first shift of the season, and the two made no secret about what their plans were even before the puck hit the ice.
These two teams played an extremely physical postseason series a year ago (one that featured this line brawl) and were involved a huge fight off of an opening faceoff two years ago that resulted in then-Canucks coach John Tortorella attempting to storm the Flames' locker room after the first period.
