Jean-Gabriel Pageau got his first NHL hat trick Sunday to lead the Ottawa Senators in a fight-filled 6-1 victory over the Montreal Canadiens.

The teams combined for 236 penalty minutes and nine players were given a game misconduct.

The Senators have a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series and Game 4 is Tuesday.

The third period started out with the Senators leading 2-1, but after Pageau's second goal of the night and a Kyle Turris goal at 7:00, emotions overflowed and a line brawl broke out at center ice.

Pageau, who was born in Ottawa, scored his second of the game at 1:18 of the third period to give the Senators a 3-1 lead.
