Capitals Tom Wilson Taken Out By Former Penguin Ryan Reaves

  • 'Who knows anymore?' Capitals unclear on what NHL considers...

The Golden Knights forward caught Wilson with a blindside hit during the second period.

In the second period of Tuesday's game, Reaves delivered a late shoulder hit to Wilson whose head was turned to face the puck. George Parros, head of the league's department of player safety, checked in with Wilson in June and August to discuss questionable post-season hits by Wilson on Jonathan Marchessault, Alexander Wennberg and Brian Dumoulin. Following his latest 20-game suspension (cut down to 14 games in appeal), Wilson proved that he learned nothing form the suspension. Reaves lit up Tom Wilson, Alex Ovechkin destroyed Tomas Nosek, and William Carrier was hitting everything that moved. He was ruled out with an "upper-body injury" shortly after and didn't return to the game.

Somehow, the Golden Knights' penalty killers were able to kill off the five minute major penalty, 4:18 of it in the second and the remaining 42 seconds to start the third.


Washington departed for the desert immediately after its 6-5 loss to the Anaheim Ducks in the District on Sunday afternoon, and the Caps held a Monday morning practice session at T-Mobile Arena, the first time their skates graced the ice sheet where they hoisted the Cup some six months earlier.

Visiting dressing rooms tend to be stale - home teams don't exactly want their opponent to feel too comfortable there - but the Capitals were excited to get back in T-Mobile Arena's ahead of their game there on Tuesday night.

Back at even strength, Vegas tied the game on a Pierre-Edouard Bellemare tip out front. Former Capital defenseman, Nate Schmidt scored his first goal of the season, on a sweet wrist shot from the high slot, to put Vegas up 4-3. "We have a unique group of guys on our team". Vegas killed all four of Washington's power-play opportunities. They are not taking opponents by surprise the way they did in their inaugural year, nor are visitors talking about the so-called "Vegas Flu" this time around. Holtby also stopped 23 shots. These two teams will play for the first time since February 13th, when Vegas Golden Knights won 5-2. Washington slips to 15-9-3, but remains at the top of the Metropolitan Division. Chicago hosted the Golden Knights last week and dropped an 8-3 decision. The Knights are not the same team as then due to their confidence with the recent five-game winning streak. Revenge, at home and playing well before the loss in the last game.
