Bruins respond to head shot with 5-1 victory over Capitals

BOSTON (AP) With Brandon Carlo heading to the hospital in an ambulance, the Boston Bruins got back at the Washington Capitals the best way they could.

Brad Marchand had two goals and an assist, and the 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.

"Put the fight aside, the guys came out with four goals (in a row) there," said Tinordi, one of two Bruins to fight Wilson after the hit on Carlo.
