The Battle of Alberta descended into chaos again during Hockey Night In Canada.
Late in the second period with Edmonton holding a commanding 6-3 lead, Oilers forward Sam Gagner went for a diving poke check while Flames goaltender Cam Talbot covered the puck. Calgary, down big, did not like this very much. So Talbot started punching everything that moved and HERE WE GO!
The melee turned into a line brawl where the goaltenders dropped their gloves and blockers and fought at center ice.
Mike Smith won the fight handily, landing five straight rights, but really, we’re all winners here.
Cam Talbot got 21 minutes in penalties by himself while Mike Smith got 17. 52 penalty minutes were given out from the play.
