On Washington Capitals Tom Wilson

Isabelle Khurshudyan of the Washington Post: Source is saying the NHL Department of Player Safety will be reviewing Capitals forward Tom Wilson’s hit on Blue Jackets forward Alexander Wennberg. Wennberg left the game with an upper-body injury. Wilson has been suspended twice this season already.

“I’m just trying to finish my check there,” Wilson said. “I’m obviously not trying to take a penalty. That cost us the game. That’s a critical moment. I’ve got to be better and maybe pass up on that hit. We’ve got the lead there so maybe a big hit is not needed. It’s playoffs. Trying to finish your checks, and unfortunately I took a penalty. They capitalized on a couple of their opportunities there in the third period.”
