Tonight Capitals fans and Rangers fans alike witnessed what I believe to be the fight of the year.
Five minutes into the third period of a 2-1 Capitals lead, Washington forward Alexander Semin got into an altercation with Rangers defenseman Marc Staal.
Washington went on to win their sixth straight game, and will try for their seventh on Tuesday when the Philadelphia Flyers visit the Verizon Center.
Philadelphia was the last team to beat the Capitals before their six game run in a 7-1 drubbing on December 20, 2008.
Hopefully Semin will be keeping his gloves on. although I can say with certainty that he would be an excellent drummer for any "up and coming" rock band.
