Capitals, Flyers involved in another line brawl

The Capitals and Flyers involved in a line brawl? That is ... actually kind of expected at this point.

For the second time this season, the Philadelphia Flyers and Washington Capitals were involved in a line brawl.

The only good thing to come out of this one is that it didn't involve Braden Holtby getting pummeled by Ray Emery. It did, however, include four fighting majors, an ejection, and John Erskine in the middle of a three-on-one encounter with Wayne Simmonds, Vincent Lecavalier, and Brayden Schenn.

Lecavalier was ejected, while Erskine and Wilson received 10-minute misconducts. Simmonds somehow escaped an ejection for his role in the aftermath (he jumped Erskine from behind as part of the three-on-one).

When all was said and done, the two teams combined for 56 penalty minutes as a result of the fight.

It all started after Luke Schenn delivered a big -- but clean -- hit on Washington's Ryan Stoa. Wilson, not a fan of such a play, engaged Schenn in a fight, which is when all hell broke loose.
