129 0

The Minnesota Wild are playing against the Vegas Golden Knights tonight and with just 5 games remaining for each team, a win could mean the division. And that’s the way this game has been played so far. But there was a moment in the first period when budding superstar Kirill Kaprizov was hit with a dirty check from behind and neither he nor his good friend, Marcus Foligno were having any of that.

If you read this headline and came here hoping to see Kirill Kaprizov body slam someone with a single-leg take down, then you came to the right place. Here are a few different videos of an absolutely intense situation that left noses bloodied and feelings hurt. I love hockey.
