When Vegas forward Ryan Reaves exacted revenge on Colorado's Ryan Graves, whose hit to the head against the boards in the second period injured Mattias Janmark, he was ejected with a double minor and a match penalty.
That resulted in a nine-minute power play for the Avalanche, who at that point were already up 6-1 in their eventual 7-1 drubbing of the Golden Knights in Game 1 of their Stanley Cup Playoffs second-round series.
A nine-minute power play may quickly take Caps fans back to Dec. 5, 2009. That's when Flyers left winger Daniel Carcillo dropped Washington winger Matt Bradley with a vicious punch after cross-checking him in the back a few times. Carcillo appeared to be frustrated with Bradley's hit and retaliated
Carcillo received five penalties at once for the confrontation: a minor for cross-checking, a minor for instigation, a major for fighting, a 10-minute misconduct, and a game misconduct, all on the same play. He was later suspended for four games.
Washington took advantage of that nine-minute power play to take a game tied at one to a 4-1 Caps' lead with goals from Tomas Fleischmann, Mike Green and Brooks Laich. The Caps ended up scoring six straight before ultimately winning 8-2.
