Tom Wilson‘s been his normal wrecking ball self tonight. Early in the game, he was ushered to the box along with Mark Fraser after both players committed roughing minors. The resulting 4-on-4 hockey led to a Karl Alzner goal.
Later in the period, Wilson laid out Eric Gelinas in the neutral zone. Gelinas’s airborne body then slammed into Brooks Laich. Ouch. I’m getting whiplash just looking at this.
That’s Willy’s third crunchy hit sandwich of the season (1, 2).
The Devils trainer came out. Gelinas took a couple moments to gather himself before returning to the bench. He was okay.
