 VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - An altercation broke out near the Calgary Flames' dressing room during the first intermission of their game against the Canucks in Vancouver on Saturday night.
CBC, which televised the game, showed Canucks head coach John Tortorella attempting to go into the Flames locker room at Rogers Arena, with Calgary enforcer Brian McGrattan pushing him away.
Flames goaltender coach Clint Malarchuk came out of the Flames dressing room after Tortorella and McGrattan were separated. Malarchuk followed Tortorella, but was restrained by several members of Calgary's staff and McGrattan.
Much of the altercation appeared off camera, but another camera showed Chris Tanev pulling Alex Burrows back toward the Canucks dressing room.
The game got off to a fight-filled start when both teams used their fourth lines for the opening faceoff. Defenseman Kevin Bieksa took the opening draw for Vancouver and a line brawl broke out as soon as the puck was dropped.
