Upon returning to DC from the All-Star break on Monday, Andre Burakovsky and Michael Latta posted photos from their dream vacation in the Bahamas. Both pictures involved posing with a dolphin, so naturally fellow brobean Tom Wilson was grilled by the Washington Post’s Isabelle Khurshudyan on if he also took a picture with a dolphin or not.

Well, you guys, Wilson did and above is the photo he took.

Cupcakes and Iced Coffee: Tom Wilson is a Basic White Girl

Ed. note: Please say hello to Victoria Dravis, RMNB’s latest acquisition.

Hockey players: They’re just like us! (And by us, I mean me and the thousands of other teenage girls hooked on the best game on Earth; no bias.)

Speaking of game, just look at Tom Wilson and Andre Burakovsky‘s Snapchat and Instagram game on the two whitest social networks above. So on point. #nofilter

This is How Much the Islanders Hate Tom Wilson

wilson-punched

Tom Wilson wrecked Long Island last spring, and they haven’t forgotten it. Defenseman Thomas Hickey walloped Wilson with a pair of dirty hits in the first period of tonight’s game.

Everyone’s favorite Caps roommates, Tom Wilson and Michael Latta, and former roommate and forever brobean Andre Burakovsky, are spending the All-Star break soaking up the sun in the Bahamas.

By the looks of this photo Wilson posted on Instagram today, they’re enjoying some (virgin, no doubt) piña coladas, ab crunches and getting behind on their chest shaving schedules. Wilson captioned the post, “Good vibes good friends ☀️ #bahamatings

What Caps Players Did During the DC Blizzard

Over the last two days, the DC Blizzard dropped two feet of snow in the district and three feet in surrounding areas. The snow forced the cancellation of both Caps’ home games this weekend including tilts against the Ducks and Penguins. That leaves the Caps in a really weird stretch, where they’ll only play one game in 14 days.

Without hockey, the players spent time with their families and messing around on social media. I went ahead and documented it all.

Here is Wilson punching Foligno in the face.

The Capitals got tattooed by the Sabres tonight 4-1. I want to point out to you the strangest part of the evening: a bout between Marcus Foligno and Tom Wilson.

Tom Wilson punched Foligno eight consecutive times in the face with a left jab. Foligno, desperate to end the fight, wrestled Wilson to the ice. Foligno then celebrated as if he won while he skated to the penalty box.

kuznetsov-pass-to-wilson

Magic man Evgeny Kuznetsov just had another one of Those Assists. The kind where you just stare at your TV or computer screen and go how did he do that?

Kuznetsov’s latest golden apple was this no-look, backhanded, sauce pass to Tom Wilson while going against the grain behind the net. It was the easiest goal of Wilson’s career.

I was recently pointed to a Tumblr post containing an essential page from the Caps 2014-15 program. It’s three of Tom Wilson’s teammates, Michael Latta, Jason Chimera, and Joel Ward, competing to see who knows the Capitals winger best. This is shocking, I know, but Wilson’s roommate Michael Latta won.

For most of his career, Caps 2012 first-round pick Tom Wilson has languished on the team’s fourth line, more a sideshow than a contributing player. When former general manager George McPhee drafted Wilson, it was Wilson’s skating ability, skill, and bruising style that garnered attention.

“When we were in the middle of the playoffs I made a note after the games: remember these games when you’re at the draft,” McPhee said after drafting Wilson. “Remember how intense they are, how physical they are, how demanding they are, and make sure you get someone who wants to play in that kind of stuff.”

Wilson certainly loves to play physical. He’s been in the NHL’s top seven in penalty minutes over the last three seasons, including third this year with 96 PIMs. He has delivered crushing hits, including one that injured veteran Lubomir Visnovsky in the playoffs. Wilson has been a league leader in fights, recording around 29 bouts in the last three years.

Wilson has been a punishing fixture in the line-up for years, but we’ve seen few glimmers of Wilson’s offensive talent. Until now.

The Capitals made it nearly halfway through the 2015-16 NHL season without suffering back-to-back loses, winning nine straight games in December. But with Brooks Orpik, John Carlson, and Jay Beagle missing from the lineup, the Caps dropped two games in a row against two of the league’s worst teams. The games were close, with Brandon Saad scoring with just over a minute left to send Saturday’s game against Columbus to a shootout after the Capitals almost came back against Carolina on Thursday. Still, the loses are disappointing for a team that desperately wants to raise the Stanley Cup this year.

“It’s going to have to be better, it’s that simple,” goalie Braden Holtby, who took just his sixth loss of the season against Columbus, said.
