Hockey can be a dangerous sport and tonight we got a reminder of that.
Late in the third period, Tom Wilson blocked a Danny DeKeyser point shot with the side of his head. The puck appeared to strike Wilson in the helmet. Wilson lied on the ice stunned after the impact. Capitals teammates, including Mike Green and Braden Holtby, raced to Wilson’s side.
It was a scary moment, but Wilson left the game under his own power.
