It took Washington Capitals rookie forward Tom Wilson 15 games and 100 minutes, but he finally did it. Wilson recorded his first NHL point– a primary assist– on Tuesday night. Alexander Urbom also scored his first goal as a Capital on the play.
Wilson’s assist was a little silly and a lot awesome.
As the 2012 first round pick went to the net, John Tavares tripped him. Wilson fell over, but landed in a sitting position. He slid through the crease and towards the boards, but he was able to pass the puck — from a seated position — to the slot. It went right to Urbom. Just like they drew it up.
Urbom shoots. Urbom SCOARS.

Alex Ovechkin has The Goal. Well, now Wilson has The Assist.
Way to go, Ten Train. And way to go, Caps fans, for giving Wilson a standing O after the goal. best))))
