PITTSBURGH — We can officially say that the Pittsburgh Penguins and Nashville Predators do not like each other.

At all.

After Sidney Crosby and P.K. Subban saw their on-ice feud escalate in the first period with a wrestling match behind the net that featured an ankle lock and some head punches, a line brawl broke out midway through the third period.

You can see all of the chaos in the video above. The most noteworthy aspect out of that altercation was probably Nashville’s Viktor Arvidsson throwing a punche at Carl Hagelin as he was down on the ice. Arvidsson ended up getting a 10-minute misconduct.

Overall there were 41 penalty minutes handed out for that brawl.

Hagelin and Roman Josi picked up five-minute majors for fighting, while Josi also picked up an interference penalty. Arvidsson got two minutes for roughing on top of his misconduct while Subban also received two minutes for roughing.

On the Pittsburgh side Hornqvist and Malkin each picked up four minutes for roughing.
