Nashville Predators and Vancouver Canucks are involved in a fight

Butler tied the game at 2 at 11:40 of the second.. Carrying the puck down the right side, Butler cut toward the faceoff circle where he fired a wrist shot by Luongo on the far side.. ”We got off to a slow start and dug ourselves a hole and we found a way to fight back,” Nashville coach Barry Trotz said.. ”In the second period we responded really well, and you could see right to the end.” Vancouver regained the lead on Garrison’s power-play goal at 17:02 of the second.. ”We were good in the first, and then for whatever reason, our play slipped in the second until Henrik’s line went out there and had a real strong shift,” Vancouver coach Alain Vigneault said.. ”That enabled us to go on the power play and score a goal.” Burrows gave Vancouver a 4-2 lead 50 seconds into the third when he redirected Daniel Sedin’s shot by Rinne.. Enforcers’ fists fly in this NHL season’s best fight photos .. ”We have done that before when we were high and really don’t have a great shot on net,” Burrows said.. ”We were trying to get a wrist shot for a tip and I was able to get a stick on it and luckily it went in.” Kesler scored his second of the game at 15:53 of the third with a wrist shot from the right faceoff dot.. Notes: Nashville D Kevin Klein missed his first game of the season with what Predators coach Barry Trotz called a ”below the neck injury” at the morning skate.. Mattias Ekholm, who played his first game with the Predators this season, replaced him in the lineup. source:
