Late in the first period, Marcus Johansson and Cal Clutterbuck battled for the puck in Caps’ defensive zone. Clutterbuck loaded up for a big hit, but Johansson countered it. Clutterbuck fell backwards, his right leg swung up, appearing to swipe the back of Johansson’s leg.
For good measure, Clutterbuck cross-checked Johansson in the hip.
Johansson needed help getting to the locker room.
But Johansson returned for the start of the second period. According to NBC, it was “just a bruise.”
