Capitals player accidentally knocks down teammate with big hit

It's a friendly fire 2-for-1 special with Tom Wilson on the ice.

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Brooks Laich thought he had a pretty good hit lined up on Minnesota Wild rookie Mathew Dumba on Thursday. Instead, he was the one who ended up on the ground.

Why? Friendly fire!

Apparently Tom Wilson has a history of doing this to his fellow Washington Capitals. He's like a bull in a china shop. No player is safe.
