Things got heated at the end of a wild first period between Edmonton and Vancouver.
After the Canucks scored two goals in an 18-second span, a sequence of rough stuff led to a verbal altercation between Vancouver head coach John Tortorella and Oilers associate Keith Action.
Here are two screengrabs, courtesy CBC:
The issue between the two likely stemmed from an incident involving Vancouver’s Ryan Kesler and Acton’s son, Will Acton. The pair fought with 41 seconds left in the frame — alongside some pushing and shoving between Ryan Stanton and Mike Brown. All told, 26 penalty minutes were handed out for the incident(s), which culminated with Tortorella and the elder Acton sharing pleasantries.
Vancouver finished the first period up 3-1.
