It was an intense night at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto on Sunday.

The Toronto Maple Leafs defeated the Buffalo Sabres 5-3 in pre-season action, but the highlight of the night was the massive line brawl that broke in the third period.

​It all started between Sabres' enforcer John Scott and Leafs forward Phil Kessel, but quickly escalated to an old school-style scrap that saw Leafs' David Clarkson jumping off the bench to join in, and a goalie fight between Ryan Miller and Jonathan Bernier.

Watch the full fight above.
