Watch Penguins-Capitals scrum spill into Pittsburgh bench (Video)

The Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals faced off last week in a typical game between the long-time rivals. It was chippy and saw a bit of controversy, One week later, there was no love lost between the two sides, as they displayed in the opening period.

Tom Wilson drove Chris Kunitz into the boards as the puck as sent into the Capitals’ zone. Blake Comeau took exception and then mayhem broke out, with the two sides coming together near the Penguins bench and eventually spilling on to it.

Via Some Hockey Videos:

The end results saw Latta, Wilson, Downie and Comeau all sit for two minutes. The Penguins took a 2-1 lead into the dressing room after the first period, so extracurricular activities won't be on the minds of the Capitals or Penguins unless this game gets out of hand score-wise.
