Videos- Drew Doughty/Matthew Tkachuk Battle Continues

from Mark Spector of Sportsnet,

Matthew Tkachuk got a few punches in, but Drew Doughty got the last laugh.


The fireworks many tuned in to see on Hockey Night in Canada between the two sparring partners came in the final 10 minutes of a game in which the listless Flames were down 4-0.

As Tkachuk skated down the left wing approaching Doughty, he essentially let go of the puck with an eye on engaging with the man he’s hated for years.

Alas, just before the point of contact Doughty went low, upending Tkachuk in spectacular fashion, sparking a dog pile most defensive line coaches would be proud of.

“It was the first time we had a one-on-one all night, so I just kind of let the puck go and was going to go engage with him and he went low on me,” said Tkachuk, whose only other exchange with Doughty was a first period conversation off a faceoff.

“Those are the moments you kind of black out and just try to get some punches in, I guess.”


Below, watch the incident and game highlights.
