Watch: Fowler leaves in distress after Giordano hits him knee on knee

Gary A. Vasquez / USA Today Sports

The Anaheim Ducks will not sleep easy Tuesday night.

The club's tilt against Calgary turned ugly when defenseman Cam Fowler was forced from the game in the third period after taking a knee-on-knee hit from Flames captain Mark Giordano.

Fowler was in severe pain as he lay on the ice after the collision, and needed assistance in getting to the bench. He was unable to put any pressure on his right leg. No penalty was assessed on the play.

Fowler's teammate Josh Manson fought Giordano shortly after, and the final 15 minutes were full of scrums, chirping, slashing, and fighting. These two teams do not like each other.

The two teams could meet in the first round of the playoffs beginning next week, and that'd be something. If that's the case, the Ducks would surely welcome it, since they dominate the Flames in Calgary.

But more importantly, regardless of the opposition, the Ducks are hoping Fowler's okay.
