Video: Turris goes after Vlasic, Hoffman cross-checks Couture
From the Department of Unlikely Fights: Kyle Turris went after Marc-Edouard Vlasic on Wednesday night.
Turris was standing up for Erik Karlsson, which sort of makes this a trifecta of unexpected violence (on a night when the Ottawa Senators were celebrating the 1,000th game of Chris Neil, who’s generally expected to be violent).
You can see that entertaining skirmish in the video above ... and perhaps disagree strongly about it being called a “fight.” How about an altercation?
If nothing else, it produced this fun GIF:
By no means was this the nastiest moment of the game, as Mike Hoffman delivered a cross-check on Logan Couture that’s likely to get attention from the league:
The Sharks ended up getting the last laugh, beating the Senators 4-3 via a shootout thanks to this nice move by Kevin Labanc.
