Video: Tom Wilson fights after his latest big hit


Whether you view him as a dirty hitter or an aggressive player, the bottom line is that opponents must be alert when Washington Capitals forward Tom Wilson is on the ice.

Tuesday provided the latest example, as Sam Reinhart got lit up by Wilson. His Buffalo Sabres teammate Jake McCabe responded immediately by dropping the gloves with Wilson.

Probably most importantly, it seems like Reinhart is OK. He returned to the action and created some plays, including making a saucy move in the third period (though he was unable to score in that instance).

You can watch the hit and the short bout in the video above this post’s headline.
