Entering Saturday’s game in Vancouver, Barry Trotz made a big change to the forward lines, bringing Tom Wilson into the top six. That move drew criticism from soft-handed, overeducated elites from websites such as R.M.N.B. dot com, but it worked.
Wilson scored in the first period after a dandy pass from linemate Evgeny Kuznetsov.

We begin in Kuzy’s office, behind the net of Jacob Markstrom. 92 scoops the puck with his backhand to Wilson, moving north to south. Wilson holds for a half second then releases.
That’s the first goal of the season for Wilson, now playing in his fourth season in Washington.

That’s the first goal of the season for Wilson and his first since March 28, at home against the Blue Jackets. Top-Six Tom, that’s what they call him.
