Reporters overheard Tom Wilson and Evgeni Malkin’s expletive-filled ‘chat’ after Tom’s late hit on Mark Jankowski
Tom Wilson was whistled for a two-minute interference minor in the Capitals’ 5-2 win over the Penguins on Thursday. Wilson was penalized after delivering a late hit to Penguins’ forward Mark Jankowski.
The Capitals screamed from the bench in frustration that officials made a call while the Penguins were furious with what they thought was another dirty hit by Wilson. Penguins center Evgeni Malkin skated over to the penalty box while Jankowski struggled to get up and exchanged words with Wilson.
So what did they say?
Malkin “just came over to have a chat,” Wilson explained. “When it’s that quiet in there, you can have those conversations.”
According to beat writers who were at Capital One Arena, there was a lot more spiciness coming from the chirping hockey players.
