The game between the Washington Capitals and the Boston Bruins on Friday was not safe from another one of Tom Wilson’s familiar nasty hits, this time with Brandon Carlo being on the receiving end in the first period of the contest. Capitals head coach Peter Laviolette claimed that he witnessed the play transpire but still insisted that his team didn’t do anything wrong.
“I saw the hit,” Laviolette said, via Samantha Pell of the Washington Post. “His feet were on the ice, he stayed down with everything. Just looked like a hard hit in the corner. Not exactly sure what happened, but to me, it looked like just a hit.”
