Mayhem breaks out after Canucks snap Panthers 12-game win streak

Featuring bench-clearing brawls!

The Florida Panthers' winning streak was snapped at 12 games thanks to Daniel Sedin's overtime winner for the Vancouver Canucks on a 4-on-3 power play in overtime. The goal is rather inconsequential in the grand scheme of things, as what will be remembered from the end of Florida's near-historic run is the brawls that came after.

Mere seconds after the Canucks scored the winning goal, forward Derek Dorsett went after Panthers backup netminder Al Montoya on the bench as Vancouver was skating back to celebrate. Though there's no way to tell what was said, it sure set Montoya and the rest of the Panthers off.

Then, it became a madhouse in between the two benches as both sides cleared for some pushing and shoving

Canucks backup netminder Ryan Miller got involved as well.

Panthers head coach Gerard Gallant also was in the mix (in the far left in the tan suit).

Eventually, the scrum died down as the referees took control of the game and both teams skated off.

The Panthers broadcasters also had some confusing words to say about the Sedin twins and peanut butter.

No one really knows who started the whole thing. The Canucks say a Panthers comment set them off.

But the Sportsnet feed suggests Henrik Sedin to be the fire starter.

All in all, a dramatic end to a heartbreaking loss for the Panthers.

Update: Luongo had an important tweet after the game. But what does it all mean?
