The Capitals-Rangers game started slow but ended with fireworks and a Brenden Dillon fight.
The violent encounter started after Brendan Lemieux decided to skate through Vitek Vanecek’s crease with seconds left to go in the game. The Czech goaltender put his arm out as if to tell Lemieux you are not welcome here. Lemieux clipped Vanecek and the Czech goaltender fell to the ice.
The Capitals didn’t appreciate that gesture too much.
