Tom Wilson is usually the guy who delivers devastating hits. But Friday against the Hurricanes, he got dropped by a perfect Brendan Smith counter hit.
The Hurricanes defenseman, making his grand return this week from a scary injury, caught Wilson with his shoulder as the enforcer went for a huge hit along the boards. Wilson crumpled to the ice in stunning fashion as the PNC Arena crowd roared.
The hit came with 3:15 remaining in the first period.
