I’m not watching, but what I’ve read suggests the Caps got the best of the fights and ended up on the power play. I’m not sure how losing fights and ending up short handed is good retaliation, but this is apparently what the league wanted. Great.

this crap is what the league deserves if they aren’t interested in protecting players.

They’re out of the playoffs so might as well try to run Wilson when you can and turn the rest of the game into a joke, as they continue to do.

What else could the Rangers do? Pretend it didn’t happen? If the league had given Wilson any discipline other than fining him the loose bills on his bureau, this would be a hockey game.

Keith Jones on the pregame show:

"Tom Wilson is this close to being "that guy" we talk about 25 years from now"

See earlier post - they've won 6 fights all season. Caps will win that many in Period 1. Rangers needed to bring up some beef for this, kind of like...

All these fights are symbolic at best. Plus the Rangers lost every fight. Wilson is a predator who hurts people. If you want to teach the Caps a lesson you send one of their guys to the locker room. I am not advocating this. Because it’s too late. This should have been cleaned up Monday.

Sometimes it’s not about winning or losing, it’s about showing up.

This whole thing is so stupid. 8 to 10 players in the box. Nothing really solved. It’s all so useless.
Agree. And you have fights where the players don't even hate each other, so with Hagelin is down, they let up. If the goal is to get even and exact injury, then you do that. If the goal is just to have a pleasant training camp fight to show you can fight a bit, then its worthless.

Do Bruins games on NBCSN get blacked out in Boston? I’m in DC and can’t watch this game—NBC Sports Washington is carrying the Wizards game and YTTV doesn’t carry their alternate channel. NBCSN is blacked out here.

Only if the game is also on NESN, otherwise nope.
