Tom Wilson wasn't in the holiday spirit Monday night.

The Washington Capitals forward was ejected late in the third period against the Boston Bruins for roughing David Pastrnak. Wilson speared Pasta in the groin, and then the two exchanged blows before the refs intervened.

Pastrnak received two minutes for roughing, but he stayed in the game.

The physicality in this contest didn't end there. With less than two minutes remaining, T.J. Oshie crushed Charlie McAvoy into the boards with a devastating check.

Oshie didn't receive a penalty on the play. McAvoy struggled to get off the ice and immediately went down the tunnel to the dressing room, but head coach Bruce Cassidy said postgame the defenseman "seems to be OK," according to NBC's Joe Haggerty.

The Bruins won 7-3 in the clash between the top two teams in the Eastern Conference.
