Tom Wilson plans on seeing former roommate Andre Burakovsky in Denver tonight: ‘He better clear his schedule’
The Washington Capitals will be in Denver later today ahead of their nationally televised game Thursday with the Colorado Avalanche.
The matchup pits two of the NHL’s best teams against each other. The Capitals have led the league in standings points for most of the year (now they sit third with 77) while the Avalanche (72) are second-best in the Western Conference. But even more important, the game also reunites two longtime roommates and Stanley Cup champions in Tom Wilson and Andre Burakovsky.
Reporters caught up with Wilson this morning and the Capitals forward was adamant a hangout was going to happen. “I haven’t texted him yet but he better clear his schedule,” Wilson said according to The Athletic’s Tarik El-Bashir.
