The Minnesota Golden Gophers penalty box was standing room only on Saturday night as a result of an insane line brawl in their game against the Wisconsin Badgers:

The series of events that led to overcrowding in the sin bin was unleashed by a bad hit thrown by Badgers defenceman Eddie Wittchow:

God awful hit from Eddie Wittchow on Leon Bridtedt. What were you thinking?

Then, all hell broke loose. Even the goalies got involved:

Full on brawl between Minnesota and Wisconsin. Even Rumpel joined. #hockeydayminnesota

Asked if he'd ever seen that many guys in the penalty box before, Gophers head coach Don Lucia joked about one of his school's bigger rivals.

"Probably the last time we played North Dakota," joked the veteran NCAA bench boss.
