TRENT BAKER

Monday, the Nashville Predators and Tampa Bay Lightning were involved in a brief brawl after a big hit by Predators defender Ryan Ellis on Lightning right winger JT Brown.

Ellis’ hit blindsided Brown, who immediately started punching the Predators defenseman.

Players from both sides jumped in, but officials jumped in to defuse the situation.

The Preds won 3-1.
