Saturday was Hockey Day Minnesota and the Ferris State Bulldogs and Minnesota State-Mankato Mavericks helped to celebrate through an old hockey tradition: a line brawl.

The three players who received disqualification penalties -- Justin DeMartino, Zach Stepan and Teddy Blueger -- get the automatic one-game suspension. Ferris State's netminder, C.J. Motte, would get dinged for 25 penalty minutes.

Minnesota State would hang on for a 4-3 win and a two-game sweep of Ferris State.
