During the second period, first-line winger Tom Wilson pulled up lame while back-checking Carolina’s John Michael-Liles. Wilson immediately left the ice and went down the tunnel to the locker room. The 20-year-old Caps was playing in the second game of a back-to-back.
The Caps say it’s a lower body injury and Wilson is questionable to return.

The injury occurred in the neutral zone while Wilson was hustling, looking to force a turnover.
