Saturday night promised a lively tie against Western Conference rivals Vancouver Canucks and Calgary Fire.
Both teams started using their fourth lines and things quickly descended into madness when the referee dropped the puck.
Within two seconds of the game starting, all 10 skaters were seen fighting each other in a mass brawl drawing an incredible 152 minutes in penalties.
All 10 players were given five minute penalties with eight receiving game misconducts and two earning 10 minute misconducts.
After the game restarted, the ill-feeling remained and an altercation reportedly broke out near the Flames' dressing room during the first intermission.
CBC cameras showed Vancouvers head coach John Tortorella attempting to gain access to the Calgary dressing room with Calgary enforcer Brian McGrattan refusing him entry by pushing him away.
Clint Malarchuk then emerged from the Flames dressing room to confront Tortorella but was restrained by three team mates.
Another 52 minutes in penalties were handed out over the course of the game, bringing the total to 204.
The game tied at 2-2 so it headed to a shootout, which was won by the Canucks after Chris Higgins scored in the fifth round.
