Washington Capitals winger Tom Wilson, who has a history of questionable hits, was back at it in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals. He blindsided Jonathan Marchessault of the Golden Knights with a huge hit.
Vegas wasn’t happy at all with hit and wants the NHL to review it. If they don’t punish him, expect more cheap shots by Wilson throughout the series.

Wilson didn’t think there was anything wrong with the hit. Marchessault had other thoughts. This series is going to be a ton of fun.
