The Washington Capitals destroyed the Philadelphia Flyers. Once Joel Ward scored his hat-trick goal in the third period, the Caps’ 7th of the game, shit got out of hand.
Wayne Simmonds dropped his gloves with Tom Wilson, and that set everything off. In its culmination, Philly goalie Ray Emery skated the length of the ice to pick a fight with Braden Holtby. Emery, a noted goalie pugilist, punched Holtby in the back of the head a few times.
The Holtbeast loved it though. A few minutes after the bout, head athletic trainer Greg Smith came out to check on the Caps goalie. He gave him a big smile.
