The Winnipeg Jets and Washington Capitals aren’t that far removed from being division rivals, so perhaps there are some residual bad feelings from those Southeast seasons?

Maybe not, but either way, the two teams erupted into a brawl highlighted by Jacob Trouba, Mark Scheifele, Tom Wilson and Michael Latta.

The Capitals were not pleased that Winnipeg ended up with a man advantage following this scene, and those sour feelings were only heightened when Andrew Ladd scored a power-play tally late in the opening frame.
