The Caps didn’t have offense for a few minutes, so they fell back on that old familiar habit: face-punching!
In a back-to-back smorgasbord of punched faces, Tom Wilson and Daniel Winnik bloodied their respective partners while looking no worse for the wear themselves.
It started with Tom Wilson and Brett Ritchie. The brawlers dropped gloves and started a long fight. Wilson had mostly jersey jabs, and Ritchie had only haymakers that glanced off.
Wilson’s face was unscathed. He got punched in the face and somehow got even more handsome. His knuckles… not so much.
Then it was Daniel Winnik’s turn, trading blows with Antoine Roussel. That fight ended abruptly when Roussel fell onto Winnik’s skate, leaving him bloody like a blading pro wrestler.
Speaking of — the good people at American Airlines Center had the good taste to blast John Cena’s entrance them after two heavyweight bouts.
The scoreboard was not affected.
