It was a matter of time before emotions spilled over in the series between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers. In the first period of Game 3, an obviously frustrated Penguins team began to take it out on their opposition including this brawl that saw Kris Letang and Kimmo Timonen ejected and sent Sidney Crosby to the box for five minutes.
The Penguins didn't help matters when Arron Asham laid this illegal cross-check and punch on a helpless Brayden Schenn.
A total of 72 penalty minutes were dished out in the first period alone.
