Former teammates Tom Wilson and Garnet Hathaway come to blows during game stoppage!

The Philadelphia Flyers faced off against the Capitals in Washington on Friday night, and the game led to tempers flaring during the third period. The home town had the lead, which seemed to anger former Capitals forward Garnet Hathaway, who spending his first season with Philly.

During a game stoppage, Hathaway appeared to be sick of hearing his former teammate Tom Wilson’s insults and slashed him only to have the Caps’ tough guy answer back with his stick.

Despite the official attempting to break them apart, the two former teammates went at it, exchanging hard blows and engaging in what looked more like a wrestling match. Hathaway quickly got the edge, standing over Wilson, who fell to the ice. While he did try to get back up to deliver more blows to Hathaway, more players got into the scrum, including Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin, and Ovechkin had Hathaway in a headlock while Hathaway tried to get some shots in on Wilson. Finally, both players were separated and sent their own way. 

They both ended up in the penalty box. They’re given 4-minutes for roughing, each.

Wilson may not have won the fight, but the Capitals ended up getting a 5-2 win over the Flyers. The Caps forward also ended the night with two assists, while Hathaway did not record a single point.

The Flyers had taken a 2-0 lead in the first frame, however, the Capitals played the last 40 minutes with a vengeance and scored five unanswered goals en route to victory.

And fans got to realize that there is no love lost between Wilson and Hathaway since their time wearing the same uniforms in Washington years ago.
