The Tampa Bay Lightning cruised to a 5-0 win over the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday night, but the game was marred by a penalty-minute total that hit triple digits.

When the dust settled, the Lightning and Sabres combined for 110 minutes in penalties, with 58 assessed to the Sabres and 52 handed to the Lightning.

The Sabres gave a breakdown of the third-period infractions midway through the frame.

Most notable among the incidents were a couple of line brawls in the final period. One came after Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman hit Sabres forward Zemgus Girgensons.

Another was ignited when Sabres forward Patrick Kaleta landed a punch on Lightning center Brian Boyle.
