Wednesday night, the Washington Capitals lost to the Carolina Hurricanes in the shootout 4-3. The biggest moments of the game included a fancy Alex Ovechkin goal and a mind-blowing shootout tally by TJ Oshie.
That wasn’t the only notable thing Oshie did. Midway through the game, according to @Canes_Gameday, the former Blue delivered a questionable hit to Joakim Nordstrom. That hit set off a small fracas, where the Canes’ Brad Malone tried to go after Oshie. Brooks Laich intervened and dropped the gloves with Justin Faulk.
I love Laich’s leadership here, but that face should not be punched.
