Watch Senators, Canadiens Game 3 line brawl a.k.a ‘center ice war’ (Fight Video)

The nasty, tense series between the Montreal Canadiens and the Ottawa Senators – from gruesome injuries to zoological taunts – finally exploded in the third period of Game 3, right after the host Senators took a 4-1 lead.

Ladies and gents, we give you a Stanley Cup Playoffs line brawl:

Yeah, not exactly unpredictable this would happen given the personnel on the ice after Kyle Turris’s goal. Lots of waves to the crowd and victory laps from the Senators, given the score.

As the video shows, Zack Smith of Ottawa gave Ryan White a cross-check off the faceoff, which prompted White to give him a two-handed slash to the thigh. Jared Cowan skated over to take on White and then everyone started to dance.

The penalty fallout from the brawl; the names in parentheses are the players that were fouled or fought:
