Bad blood has been stirring between these two teams since May 3rd when Tom Wilson of the Washington Capitals body slammed Artemi Panarin of the New York Rangers.

Yeah,'re not allowed to do that in hockey. But like okay. Tom Wilson was fined for the body slam, but not suspended. This "play" also ended Panarin's season prompting the New York Rangers official twitter account to tweet this statement.

Fast forward to their next game a mere two days later. Here's the opening face off.

Can anyone guess what happened when Tom Wilson stepped onto the ice for his first shift?

Ryan Strome versus Lars Eller. Still the same game mind you.

Let's take you down to ice level for a look at the penalty box which definitely isn't adhering to New York covid restrictions.

And then there was this cross-check from Pavel Buchnevich for good measure.

For anyone who still loves old time hockey, this was a game for the ages. Yet in a fitting end to their already dismal season, the Rangers would go on to lose 4-2.
