Wilson, Erskine drop the gloves in 2 big-time tilts

Fighting's future in hockey may still be debated, but boy is it fun to watch.

Friday's game between the Capitals and Toronto Maple Leafs had a little bit of everything, but in the second period it featured two heavy-weight bouts that brought some energy to Verizon Center.

Tom Wilson and Carter Ashton began talking before a faceoff and as soon as the puck dropped, so did the gloves. The linesman allowed this one to continue for a good span, but when Wilson got the jersey over Ashton's head, it was over.

It was a great fight, but it turned out to be just the opening act.

A mere five seconds later, John Erskine and Colton Orr squared off in a fight that could have been featured on HBO. And they did not disappoint.
