Through 14 games and 100 minutes on ice, Tom Wilson had yet to score an NHL point. The rookie class had started to blow by him. But Wilson had been making the most of his limited ice-time. In the Capitals’ 6-2 win over the Islanders on Tuesday night, Wilson’s hard work finally paid off.
Wilson recorded his first NHL assist in the second period. In the third, he scored his first NHL goal.
So kind of a big night for the 19-year-old.
