Video: Nick Foligno and John Carlson Have Epic Collision

Columbus' Nick Foligno and Washington's John Carlson got up close and personal during a penalty-marred second period of Washington's 5-4 overtime victory in Columbus on Thursday evening. This was a giant hit and it ticked Carlson off so badly that he took a cheap shot at Ryan Johansen, who just happened to be innocently skating in the neighborhood (see full video below).

In total, the Caps and Jackets amassed 42 penalty minutes during a bruising second stanza, including three fights.

Eric Fehr's OT winner, 42 seconds into the extra session, enabled Washington to escape with the win. Not so sure Carlson escaped without a headache after the massive crunch he took from Foligno.
