Capitals’ Brenden Dillon Drops Gloves With Bruins’ Chris Wagner Off Opening Draw

Defenseman Brenden Dillon dropped the gloves with forward Chris Wagner just four seconds into the Washington Capitals’ game against the Boston Bruins at TD Garden on Sunday.

After Wagner threw the first couple of punches, Dillon did not really throw any more back but took Wagner down to his knees and appeared to be ready to throw one before the referees broke the fight up.

There has been plenty of animosity between the Capitals and Bruins this season as we have seen two fights featuring Capitals forward Tom Wilson and Bruins forward Trent Frederic and a hit by Wilson to the upper-body of Bruins defenseman Brandon Carlo that resulted in a seven-game suspension.

The fight appeared to ignite the Capitals as they scored twice in 16 seconds in the first 7:49 of the game.
