Lined up for the second period's opening faceoff, Vancouver Canucks right-winger Mark Mancari started yapping. And his steady stream of words were aimed directly into the earhole of one Alex Tanguay.

The Calgary Flames left-winger didn't return verbal fire.

And post-game?

Tanguay was reluctant to divulge any details of the one-sided chat.

"Yeah, yeah, maybe," he said, chuckling and shaking his head. "I don't know what we were talking about."
