In their first meeting since Alex Ovechkin’s nasty spear to the groin of Trent Frederic, the Caps and Bruins battled on last night with the Bruins winning 5-1 in Boston.
Cap Tom Wilson leveled a nasty, high hit on Bruins defenseman Brandon Carlo during the first period.
No penalty was called on the play, despite Carlo remaining down for several minutes and needing to be helped off the ice.
Bruce Cassidy said after the game that Carlo was taken to hospital in an ambulance. The Bruins coach was understandably enraged when asked about Wilson’s intent on the play.
“You can see it. … He hits him in the head. Predatory hit from the player that’s done that before.”
