Late in the third period, Blackhawks forward Ryan Hartman stuck out his leg and tripped Alex Ovechkin to the ice.
It set off a wild chain of events, featuring everyone’s favorite angry human Wreck It Wilson.
As the Russian machine laid on the ice in pain, Top Line Tom Wilson hulked out and let the Blackhawks know this injustice would not stand. Wilson knocked over both Hartman and Tommy Wingels like they were inflatable snowmen.
Here’s another look, at real speed, from Michael Haas who was sitting in the lower bowl.

Wilson didn’t stop there. The forward then cupped his hand to his ear as if he was struggling to hear his opponent’s taunts.
Wilson’s beef with Hartman was even more remarkable considering they were teammates together in junior with the OHL’s Plymouth Whalers.
In 2013, Wilson checked three players at the same time in a game against the Columbus Blue Jackets.
