In the second period of Wednesday night’s game between the Capitals and the Winnipeg Jets, Jets enforcer Anthony Peluso checked Caps forward Tom Wilson hard into the boards. In the resulting scrum, words were exchanged. Face washes were had. Then Peluso wanted to fight.
I know this because after getting turned down, Peluso put his gloves at his hips and started flapping his figurative wings like a chicken towards Willy Baby.
Take a look.
Yeah, I’m not sure this is wise.
Wilson, to his credit, stayed in control. During his next shift, he almost scored driving hard to the net.
