There are two things that Capitals games provide nearly every night: an Alex Ovechkin goal (when we’re lucky) and Tom Wilson Getting Involved.
Wilson, who plays in all scenarios, is always the first guy in a scrum and the last guy to be heard coming out of it. Saturday was no different against the Canadiens.
Wilson reignited a rivalry with Josh Anderson and the two could be seen yapping at each other from the benches. Late during the second period, Anderson decided to get Tom back by suckerpunching him from behind. The stupid and unnecessary play landed Anderson in the box for hooking.
Tom gave Josh a very enthusiastic thumbs up from the bench. “Nice job,” he could be seen saying. “You’re doing great!”
