Players from the Philadelphia Flyers and the Washington Capitals got into a bloody brawl last night.
The mass fight started after the Capitals' John Erskine crashed into the Flyers' Vinny Lecavlier, and the Flyers' Luke Schenn slammed into the Capitals' Ryan Stoa, noted USA Today (video below).
The Capitals' Tom Wilson challenged Schenn to a fight, but before that could happen, the Flyers' Wayne Simmonds smashed into Stoa.
Both teams then proceeded to beat one another until several players were bloodied.
"Lecavalier was ejected, while Erskine and Wilson received 10-minute misconducts," SBNation.com reported. "Simmonds somehow escaped an ejection for his role in the aftermath." Simmonds did receive a double minor penalty.
The Flyers won 6-4, but, thankfully, the teams won't be playing again in the regular season, although there are always the NHL playoffs.
The Flyers didn't apologize for the fight, but instead bragged on Twitter: "You mess with one of us, you mess with all of us. #ClutchTime" and posted a picture from the fight (above).
