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.

Watch the overtime fun here.
