Tom Wilson Participated In Morning Skate, Is “Good To Go” Tonight

Washington Capitals forward Tom Wilson participated in the team’s gameday morning skate on Friday morning and will be able to play tonight. Wilson suffered an “upper body injury” in the second period of Wednesday night’s slugfest with the Rangers and did not return. 

Following the game on Wednesday, Capitals bench boss told media that he didn’t believe the injury was too serious.

The location of the injury has not been specified, but Wilson did cut his fists in a fight early in Wednesday’s game. Less than a minute into the contest, Rangers forward Brendan Smith went after Wilson as soon as Wilson took his first shift of the game.

Wilson would skate a total of four shifts in the game for a total of 2:56 of ice time.

The Capitals face the Philadelphia Flyers in the first game of a back-to-back set tonight at Capital One Arena.
