The Washington Capitals are on the brink of elimination and Tom Wilson is still out here doing what he does.
New York Islanders forward Anthony Beauvillier put his team up 2-0 with his second goal of the evening and what does he get? A Tom Wilson elbow for his trouble.

For what it's worth, Beauvillier shook it off and didn't miss a single shift. It appears he'll be okay. But that hardly seems to matter to fans online where Wilson is getting absolutely eviscerated for the hit.

The real irony in all of this is that Wilson has essentially been invisible this entire series. So... when does he decide to make his presence felt? When his team is down 2-0 in the game and 3-1 in the series. Too little too late there, Tommy Boy.
