A Tom Wilson cheapshot knocked Brandon Carlo out of Friday night's Boston Bruins-Washington Capitals matchup in the first period.

Carlo was skating after the puck near the boards when Wilson drilled the 6-foot-5 B's defenseman in the head and into the glass with his shoulder. Jakub Vrana got a couple of cross-checks in on Carlo as he went down with the injury.

Carlo stayed down for several minutes before being helped off the ice. Wilson was not penalized for the hit, and Carlo was ruled out for the rest of the game with an upper-body injury.
