Erik Gudbranson was brought in at the trade deadline to inject some physicality into the Penguins' game. He showed why in Pittsburgh's matchup the Capitals on Tuesday.

The veteran defenseman took down Washington winger Tom Wilson in the third period after the big man went after Penguins LW Jake Guentzel.

This, however, was part of a bigger scrum. It started when Wilson and Alex Ovechkin got into a collision with Penguins defenders near the net.

Canucks defenseman Erik Gudbranson , right, defending against Lightning left wing Adam Erne, would have been sought by some teams if he had not signed an extension. " Erik is an important part of our team and provides a physical element to our blue line," general manager Jim Benning said.

After that Wilson went to take on Guentzel, but Gudbranson stepped in and wouldn't let the Capitals winger get a shot off on the 24-year-old Penguin.

The two players ultimately wrestled around on the ice before officials separated them.

Both men got two-minute penalties and the game went on — just another Penguins-Capitals matchup in March.

Wilson, of course, has a long history against the Penguins. This year he knocked out Jamie Oleksiak in the first minute of his first game on the ice against the Penguins.

He also, now somewhat infamously, broke the jaw of Zach Aston Reese in last year's Eastern Conference Semifinals.

He was suspended three games for that hit.
