Maxwell OgdenCorrespondent IIIMay 5, 2013

In Game 3 of their first round series, the Montreal Canadiens and Ottawa Senators took their rivalry to another level with a brawl unlike anything we've seen this season.

At the 12:56 mark of the third period, a full-line fight erupted at center ice. All five skaters from both sides entered into vicious fistfights, as the crowd went wild and the referees attempted to control the pandemonium.

One-by-one, the referees managed to escort the culprits off of the ice.

The Senators ended up winning the game by a score of 6-1 to take a 2-1 series lead. This marks the third consecutive game that was decided by at least two goals.

Even as Ottawas secured the win, nothing was as noteworthy as this brawl.

The fighters involved were Jared Cowan, Matt Kassian, Chris Neil, Zack Smith and Chris Phillips of Ottawa and Francis Bouillon, Travis Moen, Ryan White, Jarred Tinordi and Colby Armstrong of Montreal. All were penalized.

The question is, what will they do for an encore in Game 4?
