Washington Capitals forward Tom Wilson is probably feeling pretty damn good right now.
On Thursday night the Washington Capitals took a 1-0 lead in their first round playoff series thanks in large part to a two-goal performance from clutch playoff performer Justin Williams as well as the overtime game winner from Wilson himself.
Earlier in the week Babcock had been asked about Wilson as a potential concern for the Leafs, and while there was no malice in Babcock's comments, he largely dismissed Wilson.
"Nothing against Wils because he works hard and all that, but he’s not as big of concern as lot of people on their team."
Wilson however showed class when asked about the comments , stating that he felt Babcock's comments had been fair due to the number of talented players on the Capitals roster.
