We may get an occasional fight here and there in an NHL game.  Not since the ugliness of the Red Wings, Avalanche rivalry have I seen brawls like this recent game between Vancouver and Toronto that happened over the weekend. 

According to Yahoo Sports,  the third period of the game turned into a series of ugly fights.  These various brawls came about from a blindside hit from Maple Leafs forward Nazem Kadri on Daniel Sedin of The Canucks.

The fighting got to the point where both teams goalies got involved there was also a threat issued on Twitter.

The game ended up with the Maple Leafs winning 6-3.    It will be interesting to see what punishment comes out of this mess and also what happens when these teams meet again in December.

Check out a compilation of the fights from the game below.
