After the Caps defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game Five, they guaranteed that suspended forward Tom Wilson would play another game this season. What still needed to be determined was if it would be Game Seven of the Caps-Pens second round series or Game One of the Eastern Conference Final.
Monday, after Evgeny Kuznetsov beat Matt Murray in overtime, the Caps reached the third round for the first time in two decades. TJ Oshie immediately jumped on Twitter to welcome back Tom Wilson on to the active roster in ridiculous fashion.

Wilson is featured on a Free Willy 2: The Adventure home movie poster along with first-line teammates Kuznetsov and Alex Ovechkin. A killer whale jumps over the boat.
Oshie also tweeted a Free Willy movie poster in October when Wilson returned from a four-game suspension after boarding Samuel Blais.
