Matt Martin and Erik Gudbranson dropped their gloves Saturday night to settle a score from November 5th.

It was inevitable that Martin and Gudbranson would tussle after the two had harsh words following an incident in a November 5th game in which Martin went after Canucks' rookie defenseman Troy Stecher. For his part, Martin seems to think the subjec is closed and had the following to say about Gudbranson after Saturday night's fight. "I have a lot of respect for him ... He wears his heart on his sleeve. He's a guy I'd have in my corner any day."

Matt Martin isn't concerned about the threats that were made the last time the Canucks and Maple Leafs squared off.

The two teams will face-off in Vancouver tonight. The last time they played, Martin dropped the gloves with the inexperienced Troy Stecher. Erik Gudbranson, who was tossed in that game, said that Martin was "dead" the next time they met. "I’d say both teams got caught up in the emotions of that game," Martin said Friday. "It’s sports, it’s hockey. After the games are done, you try to let them go as fast as possible. But people will hype this game up, it’s going to be talked about. It’s going to run its course (on Saturday), but we’re focused on winning and making this a successful road trip. Games get emotional sometimes and that was the most emotional game for us this season."
