During the second period of the Washington Capitals 3-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Capitals found themselves desperately needing a spark. John Erskine and Tom Wilson decided to not only give them that spark, but turn that spark into a huge bonfire.

Tom Wilson was challenged to a fight by Leafs forward Carter Ashton, who probably regrets that decision.

Tom Wilson gave Ashton quite the beating, but he also gave his knuckles one as well.

Despite that beating, the Maple Leafs still hadn’t learned their lesson yet, as enforcer Colton Orr went after John Erskine. Erskine, a charitable one, was more than happy to give Orr a free butt whooping.

That’s right Maple Leafs. Not only is your bacon inferior, your tough guys are too.
