NHL Ejections: Paul Devorski & Dan O'Halloran (9 Games)

NHL referees Paul Devorski and Dan O'Halloran along with linesmen Lonnie Cameron and Jay Sharrers presided over a massive on-ice brawl that left nine ejected during Game 3 of the Canadiens-Senators Stanley Cup Playoffs series' blowout win for Ottawa, who defeated the Canadiens 6-1.

Full line fight produces mass ejections.
With 12:56 remaining in the third period, the Canadiens and Senators lines engaged in a mighty melee, 10 players charged with fighting and eight game misconduct penalties after a two-minute minor for slashing by Montreal's Ryan White. As play resumed several minutes later, another scrum broke out at the 8:31-mark (or with 11:29 remaining in the third period), resulting in two roughing minors, two instigators (one face shield), two fighting and one additional game misconduct after a Josh Gorges (Montreal) two-minute minor for charging. In all, 14 players were charged with fighting during the third period and one received a simple misconduct (White).

When the dust—or ice—finally settled, nine players received game misconduct (ejection) penalties...
