Bruins Pound Capitals

BOSTON (AP) — Brad Marchand had two goals and an assist and the Boston Bruins responded to a head shot from Capitals forward Tom Wilson with a three-goal second period to beat Washington 5-1 on Friday night.

Two days after Alex Ovechkin slashed Trent Frederic in the groin, the game again took an ugly turn when Wilson smashed Brandon Carlo’s head into the glass with 90 seconds left in the first period. Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy said Carlo left the arena in an ambulance and went to a hospital but could not confirm that it was a concussion.

Frederic and Jarred Tinordi fought Wilson in the game, but the real revenge was the scoring.


CHICAGO (AP) — Philipp Kurashev scored the only goal in a shootout to lift Chicago past Tampa Bay.

Alex DeBrincat scored twice and Dominik Kubalik added a goal in regulation, and Malcolm Subban made 39 saves.

Anthony Cirelli, Alex Killorn and Ryan McDonough scored for Tampa.
