Washington Capitals forward Tom Wilson is a six-foot four-inch behemoth on the ice. There are very few players in the NHL with both his size and speed. That might be why when he went for a loose puck in the second period Saturday night, he accidentally played some hockey bowling with three Columbus Blue Jackets players. That looks dangerous.
Blue Jackets defenseman Nikita Nikitin ended up being injured on the play.
If there’s ever been imagery that perfectly articulates Columbus’s struggles since their inception in the NHL, this is it.
