Tempers flare in Vancouver.

Game 2 of the second round series between the Edmonton Oilers and Vancouver Canucks is as exciting as we all expected it to be.

In the second period, with the score tied at 2, tempers flared as both teams had just recently complained to officials about the lack of penalties for their respective clubs.

Moments later, players on the ice took matters into their own hands, which ended with a full line brawl erupting near the boards with, surprisingly enough, Oilers superstars Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl in the middle of it.

It took the officials the entire commercial break to separate players and finally, when they reviewed the play, the Oilers ended up with the man advantage.

There was even a huge penalty missed when, just after the line brawl, McDavid drew some blood out of Canucks' captain Quinn Hughes. It's been quite a hectic period! 

Unfortunately for McDavid, Draisaitl and the rest of the Edmonton players, they did not capitalize on the power-play, which quickly turned into a four-on-four, and moments later, the Canucks took a 3-2 lead thanks to Nikita Zadorov. 

Gotta love the Canadian hockey passion in this series! Are you not entertained ??
