Alex Tanguay might have some competition for this title.

He should.

Tanguay still leads all Calgary Flames with 14 penalty minutes, but Tim Jackman dropped the gloves with Tweeting tough guy Paul Bissonnette in Monday’s 4-0 loss to the Phoenix Coyotes at Jobing.com Arena and is now just one dirty deed away from tying for the team lead.

Jackman has been the Flames’ biggest bad boy for the past two campaigns and was widely expected to spend the most time in the sin-bin again this season, but he arrived in the desert with just one minor and major in 11 skates so far.

Apparently, he also arrived in a foul mood.

The 6-foot-2, 225-lb. brute logged 15 shifts and finished with two shots and a game-high eight hits. He also earned the decision is his bout with Bissonnette, with the linesman intervening as the Flames enforcer bonked the top of his head.

“Our coaching staff wants our line to play physical and finish our checks. He wants everyone to finish checks when we have the opportunity and make it difficult for the other team,” Jackman said. “That was our game plan, like it is every night.”
