Hockey goal-scoring phenom Tom Wilson has done it again.
Combining with Jakub Vrana, Wilson has scored thirteenth goal of the season early in the first period against the Flyers.
We join the action at the blue, where Vrana blows by the Philadelphia defense to get deep. Reading the play adroitly, Wilson crashes the net just in time to receive a lateral pass.
Philadelphia’s latest goalie, 35-year-old Mike McKenna, wasn’t fast enough to stop it.
With 13 goals Wilson is now the sole occupant of second place in scoring despite having missed the first month of hockey to suspension.
Wilson’s now one tally shy of his career high set last year in 55 fewer games.
Wilson missed 19 games this season. At his current scoring rate, he's currently on a 46 goal pace over the course of a full 82 game season.
