You know Washington Capitals veteran Brooks Orpik is going to be feeling this one tomorrow morning. 

On Tuesday night Vancouver Canucks defenseman Ben Hutton tried to ignite some fire under his teammates when he delivered a thunderous body check that sent Orpik sprawling to the ice, and eventually into the boards. 

Orpik's teammate, Devante Smith-Pelly, didn't like the hit very much and he immediately came charging at Hutton who appeared to have fully expected the retaliation and had already dropped his gloves in preparation. 

The fight itself didn't last very long once it got underway but despite that it was a wild one, with both men throwing a flurry of heavy punches with some ill-intent behind them.
