And so, the wheel keeps turning.
Josh Anderson's ejection in Game 1 was...suspect.
Tom Wilson's two-minute minor for a hit that was (in many ways) more vicious seemed charitable.
So, the NHL's Department of Player Safety decided that neither player will face supplementary discipline, according to Isabelle Khurshudyan of the Washington Post. What's interesting is that Wilson, with "repeat offender" status to his name, gets off with only a minor penalty here for a hit that injured Alexander Wennberg. Wennberg is doubtful for Game 2, according to Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen.
Kekalainen called Wilson's hit "dangerous," but apparently the league didn't see it that way.
No DoPS hearing coming for Tom Wilson (or Josh Anderson). Caps might have caught a break with insufficient TV angles https://t.co/3B1yGb5e6e
