Brenden Dillon and Ryan Hartman Throw Down

nhl hockey fight wild capitals

The Washington Capitals and Minnesota Wild faced off Sunday night with the Capitals walking away with a critical two points to stay on top of the Metro division.

These two teams play one more time, in the second-to-last game of the regular season, and it’ll be interesting to see then where Ovechkin is at in his push to catch Wayne Gretzky’s all-time goals record; during this game Ovi hit 702 and 703.

With one minute left in the first period, chaos erupted when the Wild's Ryan Hartman took a healthy two-handed whack at Kovalchuk near the Minnesota net. Kovalchuk came right back at him and then Caps defenseman Brenden Dillon and Hartman dropped the mitts and had a full blown boxing match.

Dillion started off strong just feeding rights to Hartman, but then Hartman switched stances and went with the right, catching Dillion with a few stiff blows to the jaw. Neither man backed down and both handled the fight flawlessly, at the end it is safe to say that it was a clean draw.

Washington and Minnesota were assessed 11 minutes worth of penalties in the first period alone.

The Washington Capitals grabbed the win in the third period over the Minnesota Wild 4-3.
