Matt Niskanen may be new to the Capitals/Flyers rivalry, but with being a former Penguin, he knows how to play a physical game against the Flyers. Near the end of the second period, the Flyers were making a push into the Capitals zone. Flyers forward Scott Laughton was able to bring the puck pass the blue-line, but came to a screeching halt thanks to Matt Niskanen. When Laughton tried to pass the puck, Niskanen laid down a huge hit overtaking the forward. Niskanen’s hit was legal, as he lowered his shoulder into Laughton’s chest. After the play, Laughton was seen going to the Flyers locker room. Watch Matt Niskanen’s crushing hit on Scott Laughton here:
