Sunday during the Capitals’ final preseason game, bottom-six forward Tom Wilson received a five-minute major and a game misconduct for boarding Blues forward Samuel Blais.
Blues head coach Mike Yeo called the hit “predatory.”
“It’s a predatory hit with a guy that apparently didn’t learn his lesson from the first suspension,” Yeo said. “Maybe coming down a little bit harder on him will make him think a little bit about about it. It’s tough going after vulnerable people.”
Because neither of the team’s right-holders televised the game, video of the hit has been unavailable… until now.
Late Monday night, a source sent RMNB the video.
