Listen, I know this isn’t Washington Capitals related, but this is one of the most insane things I’ve ever seen. On Saturday, the Vancouver Canucks faced off against the Toronto Maple Leafs, and boy did it get ugly.
It also had one of the best hockey visuals you’ll see this year.
With about five minutes left in the third period, a line brawl broke out. That’s when Vancouver goalie and great head of hair Ryan Miller dropped his definitely-not-oversized goalie gear, skated over to Matt Martin, and gave the boy some serious business. Frederik Andersen got involved. By the end of the fight, both goalies were tossed.
Former Capital Connor Carrick didn’t escape unscathed either.
Goalie fights are great, but here’s the real kicker: the Ref Cam.
The view from the Ref Cam is just another reason why Ref Cam is best cam.
Everyone reacted pretty much the same way:
Well, at least Ryan Miller stopped someone tonight.

Toronto won 6-3. The game’s penalty summary is a short novel.
(You’ll probably be hearing more about Kadri’s triad of penalties in coming days.)
A total of 161 penalty minutes were assessed. And while earlier reports that the Canucks were assessed 69 penalty minutes were niiiiice, the final number was 86.
