During the Capitals 4-1 victory over the Blues, Ryan Reaves of the St Louis Blues tried to get something going for his team in the second period by fighting Tom Wilson. That was a pretty poor decision by Reaves.
Analysis: Tom Wilson is the clear winner of this fight with an early take down. Reaves is one of the more respected enforcers in the league, so props to Wilson for having the guts to stand up for his teammate (Reaves hit Backstrom near the head area earlier in the game).
Tom Wilson has already accumulated a pretty impressive resume. Let’s ask legendary rock band Queen what they have to say about this fight.
