Wilson scored a goal on four shots, dished an assist and added three hits in Saturday's 3-2 overtime win over the Bruins in Game 1. Wilson opened the scoring on a feed from T.J. Oshie in the first period. In overtime, Wilson set up Oshie's shot that was tipped in by Nic Dowd for the decisive goal. The 27-year-old Wilson put up 13 goals and 33 points in the regular season, and he figures to be a key part of the Capitals' forward group during the postseason.
Wilson (lower body) returned to Saturday's game versus the Flyers at the start of the second period, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports. Wilson and Flyers forward Nicolas Aube-Kubel made incidental contact that saw Wilson leave for the dressing room in the first period. He was able to join the team on the bench after the intermission, and he should be good to go for the rest of the contest.
Wilson (lower body) left Saturday's game against the Flyers in the first period after being involved in a collision, Jordan Hall of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. Wilson appeared to hyper-extend his knee on the play. The timing of the incident is unfortunate for the power forward with the playoffs right around the corner. If Wilson's unable to return, the Capitals should have an update on his status prior to Tuesday's season finale against Boston.
Wilson (upper body) will play Friday versus the Flyers, JJ Regan of NBC Sports Washington reports. Wilson exited Wednesday's win over the Rangers with an upper-body issue, but whatever forced him from that contest evidently wasn't overly serious. The 27-year-old winger is expected to skate on Washington's third line and top power-play unit Friday.
Wilson (upper body) won't return to Wednesday's game against the Rangers. Following Wilson's fine without a suspension for roughing New York's Pavel Buchnevich in Monday's game, Wilson answered the bell to a fight and 15 PIM on Wednesday. Wilson will depart having played just 1:54 in the game.
