A full out line brawl at the very start of the Vancouver Canucks / Calgary Flames game from Saturday January 18, 2013 as every player on the ice squared off to fight.
As soon as the puck dropped, the players went at it, resulting in eight ejections and a total of 142 penalty minutes.

The ice was full of gloves and sticks as each player found someone else to fight. Even Canucks left winger Kellan Lain, two seconds into his NHL debut, wasn’t afraid to get physical.
The fighting wasn’t even limited to the players to a certain extent. Tortorella and Hartley were getting into it from across the benches. Torts wasn’t even content to keep it confined to the bench, as he headed for the Flames hallway during intermission, causing what was another kerfuffle, as you can see here.
