In one of ice hockey’s lesser-seen sights, rival goaltenders Mike Smith and Cam Talbot traded punches as tensions spilled over in the NHL clash between the Edmonton Oilers and Calgary Flames.
It’s a match-up dubbed ‘The Battle of Alberta’ because of the tempestuous history between the two Canadian teams, and Saturday night’s latest installment didn’t disappoint.

Talbot duly obliged, skating out to meet him as the pair circled each other before going at it.
