During last night’s Canucks – Stars game, three fights broke out in three seconds (of game time) on three consecutive faceoffs. It was one of those beautiful moments when hockey’s written and unwritten laws work together to give a little order to the chaos of fighting. The only thing this was missing was a weigh-in the night before the game.
Ryan Garbutt vs. Aaron Volpatti
Vernon Fiddler vs. Maxim Lapierre
Eric Nystrom vs. Dale Weise
Dallas won the hockey game that took place around the fights, 4-3.
