Unfortunately, that aggression finally boiled over.

The 24-year-old did hobbled off to the locker room with the help of a trainer and did not return in the second period, before the Capitals ruled him out for the remainder of the game. As for Reaves, he received a major for interference and was ejected.

Finding Tom Wilson supporters is a very hard thing to do, even within the Capitals' fan base and media crowd. The suspension was originally supposed to be 20 games but an arbitrator reduced the punishment in mid-November.

Usually, Washington Capitals forward Tom Wilson is the one dishing out illegal hits around the National Hockey League.

A more accurate comparison to Tuesday's hit would be the one Wilson delivered to New Jersey Devils forward Brett Seney on Friday. I think last game maybe we fell back into that a little bit too much after a big lead, and it's a reminder that you have to keep playing the right way in order to have success at any point in the game.

"He just said that because he was hurt, it was an automatic ejection", Reaves said.

Wilson was suspended by the NHL's Department of Player Safety for the first 14 games of the season for an illegal check to the head during the preseason.

The severity of Wilson's injury is unclear.

Las Vegas is about due is as it gets for a win over the Capitals. The former Capitals player added an empty-netter moments later.

It was the first time Washington skated at T-Mobile Arena since winning and hoisting Stanley Cup in June. But Vegas is actually getting more production from its second unit, a newly cobbled threesome of Max Pacioretty, Cody Eakin and Alex Tuch. He made no mistake with it and potted it under the cross bar to give the Capitals a 2-1 lead with 8:18 remaining in the second frame. The Fortress has never been louder than it was following the Eakin go-ahead goal.

Schmidt scored twice in the final two minutes to lift the Golden Knights over the Capitals 5-3. It was the ideal time for Schmidt's first goal (the eventual game-winner). It's a pretty special feeling for us as individuals, our team, our organization, everything. Following the game, Schmidt described the night as "an intense, high speed, high octane game" and he wasn't wrong. Vegas killed all four of Washington's power-play opportunities. These two teams will play for the first time since February 13th, when Vegas Golden Knights won 5-2. Washington slips to 15-9-3, but remains at the top of the Metropolitan Division.

The Golden Knights host the Chicago Blackhawks at 10 p.m. on Thursday at T-Mobile Arena.
