20. Record-Setting Rumble

Date: 2/26/1981
Game: Minnesota North Stars vs. Boston Bruins
Location: Boston Garden (Boston)

We guess saying there's bad blood between these two is like saying Cane and Abel didn't get along very well. This brawl breaks out just seven seconds into the game. Come on, fellas, let some egregious action take place before the gloves come flying off. This one doesn't get completely ridiculous until the fight spills over into the crowd. Then, all hell breaks lose as cops get involved and entire benches clear. Here are the numbers by the end: 84 penalties, 406 penalty minutes, 12 ejections, and a first period that lasted for an hour and 30 minutes. In case you're wondering, this did set the record—at the time—for most penalty minutes in a game.
