If you’re not watching tonight’s game between the Washington Capitals and Anaheim Ducks, do yourself a favour and get the game on NOW!

The Capitals appeared to take a 3-0 lead on a goal by Chandler Stephenson… or did they? As Stephenson scored an all-out brawl broke out behind the Ducks’ net.

Check it out:

This was all instigated by a hit from Caps forward Brendan Leipsic, which led to the question, “Should the goal count?”

Here’s the hit:

Leipsic ended up with a penalty on the play, so how can the Caps score? Great question.

After all this madness, referee Wes McCauley confirmed with his officials on the correct call. Goal? No goal? Penalties? What on Earth is going on here!?

McCauley took his sweet time sorting things out and the teams were forced to wait more than five minutes while the officials got things straight. In the end, the Caps were credited with the goal, but we’re still sorting out all the infractions. Stay tuned.
