The Nashville Predators and Winnipeg Jets combined for a ridiculous amount of penalties in Saturday's game, and the two teams nearly ran out of space in their respective penalty boxes following a melee early in the third period.

Here's how it all started:

Twelve unsportsmanlike conduct penalties were called at the 4:44 mark of the final frame, and the infractions didn't end there.


The game got out of hand early when the Predators jumped out to a 4-0 lead before the first intermission. Nashville added three more goals and cruised to a 7-0 victory.
