It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
BEST OF MAXIM
The Flames-Canucks game in Vancouver kicked off with a massive line brawl Saturday night at Rogers Arena, resulting in eight ejections and 152 combined penalty minutes just two seconds into the game. Canucks coach John Tortorella confronted Calgary coaches during an intermission, and apologized to all players involved after the game. One of the players ejected, 24-year-old Kellan...
Vancouver Canucks' number one goaltender Roberto Luongo will start for the Canucks on Saturday night when the team hosts the Calgary Flames, as confirmed by Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night in Canada. Luongo has only been in the lineup in one of the last 10 games. In that game, he has run over by Los Angeles Kings' captain Dustin Brown.By kcxd, via Wikimedia CommonsIn 33...
Its been a rough week in Canucksville to say the least. A monster performance in LA despite the loss, being pummeled within an inch of their life against the Ducks, basically it was a write off and finally to continue the trend, the Coyotes add to Vancouver’s endless misery with a win where again, nothing could go right.
Even though losing is part of the game of hockey, teams don’t...
As Paul noted, the Vancouver Canucks and Calgary Flames got into quite the brawl to start their game off, and as the Flames left the ice, this happened:

He appears stumped. A rare enough occasion.
The topic that gives Brian Burke pause on this night?
No, not the brawl between his Calgary Flames and the Vancouver Canucks. (That particular icebreaker of a subject, by the way, is a non-starter in the visiting team’s bunker at Rogers Centre.)
What renders the Flames boss speechless during Saturday’s second intermission is a question...
On Saturday night the Calgary Flames and Vancouver Canucks wasted little time before getting into a full on brawl. The result of the brawl which started two seconds after puck drop was several penalties which resulted in 142 penalty minutes.
As if that was not enough, Canucks coach John Tortorella tried to get into the Flames locker room between periods.
No way could there be any talk of moral victories.
No chance the Calgary Flames could speak of near misses, bad breaks or a determined effort coming up shy.
Not in the manner with which they were thumped 5-2 by the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday night.
So often this season, even amidst some of the defeats during this franchise-record seven straight home-ice losses — all in regulation...
John Tortorella will have an in-person hearing tomorrow in New York. Substantial fine and suspension both possible. #TSN — Darren Dreger (@DarrenDreger) January 19, 2014
In the final game of the most recent edition of Hockey Night In Canada, the Vancouver Canucks and Calgary Flames made headlines by brawling to begin the game.

Vancouver Canucks head coach John Tortorella will answer to the National Hockey League for his actions during Saturday's game against the Calgary Flames.
He will have an in-person hearing in New York with the league this morning with a substantial fine or suspension as possible outcomes.

After a player-brawl and coach-attempting-to-visit-opponents-scrap-filled 3-2 Vancouver Canucks shootout win over the Calgary Flames, coach John Tortorella played it by the book during his brief post-game presser:
He more or less built an impenetrable, "I'm not answering that" and/or, "I won't talk about fights with anyone who didn't play the game"...
The Vancouver Canucks are struggling to score goals at a rate few teams can relate to. The Calgary Flames happen to be one of them.
The goal-starved Pacific Division foes will try to break out of their respective slumps Saturday night in Vancouver.
The Canucks (24-16-9) are on a season-worst 1-5-3 stretch since Dec. 30. After Thursday's 1-0 loss at Phoenix - their second by...
from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,
So there was Vancouver Canucks’ coach John Tortorella, who’d more or less been on his best behavior all season, trying to get to the Calgary Flames’ dressing room after the a brawl-filled first period to challenge … who? Bob Hartley, the Flames coach? Probably. It wouldn't have made any sense to go after Brian McGrattan...
