The Calgary Flames brought Brian McGrattan over as an enforcer "type" and Patrick Bordeleau found out why. The Colorado Avalanche skater and Flames defenseman went at it in what one of the startled announcers called a "full-time, stand-up hockey brawl."
You don't see many hockey fights with the intensity of this one and, after the two went shot for shot for about thirty seconds, they were escorted to their respective boxes as spent as dollar bills in a Toronto strip joint.
The best part may be the announcers' spirited call of the bout.
Most of these shots by each skater connected, so let's call this a draw.
