Red Wings, Flames break out into line brawl on Wednesday

The Red Wings dominated the Calgary Flames in Detroit on Wednesday night, cruising to an 8-2 win. 

The blowout, however, wasn’t the most exciting thing to happen on the night.

With Detroit defender Luke Witkowski leaving the box, Calgary’s Matthew Tkachuk smacked Witkowski on the back of the leg with his stick. 

Almost immediately, Witkowski came back out of the box, words were exchanged and the brawl was on, with many others from both sides jumping in on the action.

Here’s a closer look of the debacle.

So while the Red Wings got revenge from their 6-3 loss to the Flames on Thursday, it likely won’t be the score that people remember first, but the bout in front of the benches.
