The St. Louis Blues were the first team to break the 100-point plateau in the NHL this season on Monday night.

And they capped it off with an old-fashioned line brawl to seal a 4-1 3-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets in St. Louis.

With the Jets down 3-1, the game devolved into mayhem during the final seconds as bodies banged behind the Blues net and fights erupted as the clock ticked down.

Meanwhile, Chris Potter raced down the ice and apparently scored the Blues’ fourth goal, only to be rescinded by the NHL after the play was ruled dead, as 100 minutes in penalties were given out at the end of the game.

After the game, Jets head coach Paul Maurice was livid that the Blues were awarded a third goal.
