The Washington Capitals snapped a four game losing streak on Monday thanks in part to an bloody brawl between Matt Hendricks and Kyle Chipchura and a red balloon.

While most Caps fans will credit a looming red balloon that hung over the ice during the second period for Washington’s turnaround, center Matt Hendricks fight certainly contributed. ¬†Hendricks dropped the gloves as the first period came to an end and received a great ovation from the home crowd as he yelled to the Washington bench and high-fived fans on his way to the dressing room.

Hendricks earned the Caps hard hat for the motivation.

This is still my favorite Matt Hendricks fight.
