Watch: Goalie Fight - Talbot vs Smith in BOA
WHAT. A. NIGHT.
The Battle of Alberta is back!
Last night, during the Oilers 8-3 win over the Flames in Calgary, things boiled over late in the 2nd period. Oilers forward Sam Gagner poked at a loose puck and former Oilers' goaltender now Flame Cam Talbot lost it which led to a fight with former Flame and current Oiler Mike Smith. Check out the video below for more on that.
The 2 clubs combined for 102 penalty minutes. There were 3 fights, both goalies were ejected and let's not forget the penalty shot as well.
McDavid had 2 goals and Gaetan Haas scored on a penalty shot late in the 3rd.
Leon Draisaitl had 4 assists and now has 83 points - best in the NHL!
It might have been the best game in the NHL this season, at least for Oiler fans.
The Oilers are off until Tuesday when they play in Arizona.
The next BOA is April 4th in Calgary. The last day of the NHL season.
