Video: Ducks' Carrick & Sharks' Viel Fight Off Opening Faceoff

The Anaheim Ducks and San Jose Sharks don't like each other, and their bad blood was on display early and often on Sunday night. Off the opening faceoff, Ducks forward Sam Carrick and Sharks forward Jeffrey Viel dropped the mitts in a spirited tilt that set the tone for the entire game.

As division rivals who play each other a ton during the regular season it's no surprise there's some animosity. Still, it's not often we see a tilt off the opening faceoff and whoever said fighting in hockey is dying needs to reconsider.

Takedown goes to Viel, but decision to Carrick?
