Tom Wilson pummeled Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Brendan Smith in a brutal fight late in the Caps’ blowout loss to the Canes.
In the two teams’ last game, Smith injured Nic Dowd, decked Tom Wilson with a counter hit, and sent Evgeny Kuznetsov hard into the boards.
Smith could be seen on replays yapping at Wilson from the Hurricanes bench, looking to fight the Capitals winger, after the two were separated by officials on a previous shift.
The two dropped the gloves minutes later in the third period. It did not look like a fun time for Big Boy Brendan.
