#5 T.J. Oshie vs. Brayden Schenn
The Washington Capitals and Philadelphia Flyers renewed their playoff rivalry in 2016 in the first round. The Caps were up in the series three games to one and right before the opening face-off there was talk between T.J. Oshie and Brayden Schenn. Off the face-off the two dropped the gloves.
They fought at center ice. Each player throwing punch after punch and not a single ref in sight to stop it. Oshie chose to fight Schenn after he tripped Evgeny Kuznetsov in Game 4 of the series. The Caps had a 3-0 lead and the Flyers caught them off guard in both Games 4 and 5 before the Caps wrapped up the series in Game 6.
Doing this list, I felt like I had to include all the stars including Ovechkin, Oshie, and even Braden Holtby in that line brawl against the Flyers nearly three years prior. We’ve got more surprises for you in the remaining slides with some names you might or might not recognize. That is the best part about these lists, when you combine the past and the present all into one slideshow.
How are we doing so far? I think we’ve got even better fights coming.
