When Alex Ovechkin got tripped in the second period, referee Brad Wilson was not happy with the offender… whoever that was. (It was not who they think it was.)
“We got a trip! Whoever tripped Ovechkin.” Watson announced, possibly unaware he was speaking into a hot microphone. Watson continued to someone off-mic, “No, no, he got – he got tripped. Twenty five? Twenty five.”

Number twenty five belongs to Jacob De La Rose, who served two minutes for the trip. But he did not commit the trip. Here’s a replay.
And in case it’s not clear, here’s another angle.
The trip was committed by Karl Alzner, who got away scot free. The Caps did not score on the power play.
Ian Oland contributed to this story. That means he was the one who noticed that Alzner did the trip.
