Washington Capitals forward Tom Wilson was ejected late in the third period of Wednesday’s game versus the Ottawa Senators for what initially appeared to be a hit to the head of Curtis Lazar.

The hit occurred with 4:42 left in the final period and the Capitals leading by two goals.

Wilson, who had thrown a pair of heavy hits earlier in the game, was assessed a match penalty. A scuffle ensued after the whistle, while Lazar was attended to by a member of the Senators training staff.
