Golden Knights’ Reaves ejected after blindside hit on Capitals’ Wilson

Golden Knights’ Reaves ejected after blindside hit on Capitals’ Wilson

The Washington Capitals winger, who picked up four suspensions since the beginning of the 2017-18 preseason, was nailed by a late hit from the Vegas Golden Knights' Ryan Reaves late in the second period.

Added coach Todd Reirden: "That's definitely not an easy way to lose your streak, let alone lose the game". "We have a unique group of guys on our team".

Finally, the two have a history. After the game, Reaves argued that he should not have been ejected for the hit. You had the lead changes, you had swings, you had them buzzing and we were going. He would receive a 5 minute major and a game misconduct served by Daniel Carr.

"I think we all seen the hit and video, it's a clean hit, there's nothing wrong with the hit. I thought it was shoulder to shoulder and I didn't think it was that late". The hit from Reaves sent Wilson's helmet flying in the air. I think last game maybe we fell back into that a little bit too much after a big lead, and it's a reminder that you have to keep playing the right way in order to have success at any point in the game.

According to oddsmakers at, the Golden Knights are a -150 favorite to win on the moneyline. But Vegas is actually getting more production from its second unit, a newly cobbled threesome of Max Pacioretty, Cody Eakin and Alex Tuch. When you play on the edge and go after opposition players like Wilson does, eventually, they're going to get you back. The Eakin line has combined for 28 goals while seeing less ice time than the top unit. Holtby also stopped 23 shots.

Doctors amazed after man coughs up blood clot of lung bronchial tree
Indeed, the patient had several coughing episodes in which he expelled small amounts of blood, according to the report . In 2012, it was reported a 40-year-old in the United Kingdom literally coughed out her lung through her ribs.

"That's on our leadership and our staff to get ourselves ready after a long flight", Reirden said Sunday.

Back at even strength, Vegas tied the game on a Pierre-Edouard Bellemare tip out front. Although before the end of the period Jakub Vrana finished off a lovely feed from Brett Connolly to tie the game up at one During that period the face-off battle was swinging heavily in Vegas' favor, they were 73 percent in the face-off circle compared to the Caps 23 percent. I guess we will just have to see what happens.

The Blackhawks look to halt a 2-game losing-streak.

The Capitals announced that Tom Wilson suffered an "upper-body injury" (likely a concussion) from his head hitting the ice after the hit. These two teams will play for the first time since February 13th, when Vegas Golden Knights won 5-2. He won his last five starts of the month, but lost a 2-1 shaving to the Oilers in Edmonton on Saturday in his first start of this month.
