Tom Wilson win by KO Fun

It's unfortunate that, from the safety of the bench or press box, hockey executives occasionally stir up problems for their men in the trenches. Forty years ago, while ahead two games to one in the Cup Final and with nothing happening, Montreal coach Scotty Bowman deployed his biggest weapons simultaneously. For all intents and purposes, Bowman's brainstorm cost Pierre Bouchard his career.

Last year, after Tom Wilson had injured Aston-Reese and declined a subsequent invitation from Jamie Oleksiak, veteran Penguin General Manager Jim Rutherford - who should know better - had far too much to say. He talked about how Wilson had "run away" from Oleksiak, and how the Capital had only become brave "after the linesmen" had arrived.

There is no percentage in giving an opposing player an axe to grind. It was no surprise that Wilson was looking for Oleksiak in this game. After a fairly routine hit by the Pittsburgh defender, Wilson drop his gloves. While it would be a mistake to say that Wilson attacked Oleksiak, it would also be a mistake to think that the latter had a fair chance here. Oleksiak was too close to Wilson when he realized that his opponent had dropped his gloves.

After one ineffective punch by Oleksiak, Wilson delivers three right hands, two of which appear to land on the back of his adversary's head. Then we have Wilson's fourth and final punch - a solid right that sends Oleksiak to the ice. The big Penguin gets to his feet, but is very unsteady and does not return to the game.

I don't think there's any doubt that Oleksiak has a concussion, and there's no way of knowing when (or if) he will return. And had it not been for Rutherford's imprudent remarks, the entire incident might have never happened.

The punishing hit Washington Capitals' tough guy, Tom Wilson delivered to Zach Aston-Reese in last year's playoffs drew the ire of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Jamie Oleksiak tried to get Wilson to go. Wilson ignored the attempt, prompting Penguins' General Manager, Jim Rutherford to criticize Wilson in the media. It's Wilson's first game against Pittsburgh and on his first shift, he finds Oleksiak after he throws a check along the boards. Wilson has the gloves off and Oleksiak turns to see Wilson, dropping the gloves right away. They get a grip of each other and Oleksiak tries to get set but Wilson throws three rights, landing two that get Oleksiak leaning away. Oleksiak's helmet and visor gets knocked off and then Wilson comes through with a big right that flattens Oleksiak. Wilson lets go and skates away to loud applause from the home crowd while Oleksiak gets up, bloodied and out of it. Oleksiak has to be helped off and at the benches some trash talking goes on between Sidney Crosby and Alexander Ovechkin. Oleksiak never returned to the game, later diagnosed with a concussion. After the game Wilson credited Oleksiak but also admitted that Rutherford's comments the prior season were a factor in the fight. This was a big KO for Wilson and big statement victory for him as a fighter. He's been often criticized for his play and labeled as dirty by the media, especially in recent years. However he is one of the few players left in the NHL who regularly throws big hits and fights frequently, in addition to evolving his game as player and becoming a scoring threat who plays on his team's top line. All of that has made him a centerpiece in the long heated rivalry between the Capitals and Penguins.

After some animosity between the two in last years playoffs, Tom Wilson wasted no time going right after Oleksiak in their first time playing each other since (Wilson was suspended the first time the Caps played the Pens this season.) 55 seconds into the game, Wilson skated right to Oleksiak near the blue line and threw off his gloves, Oleksiak then dropped his and the two grabbed on. Oleksiak threw the first punch and missed. Wilson then threw 4 consecutive rights, appearing to land 3. In the flurry of punches, Oleksiak's helmet flew off and after that Wilson's last punch clocked Oleksiak and down he went. Oleksiak popped right back up, but was clearly out of it and needed help to the bench. Oleksiak left the game and did not return. KO win Wilson.

The bad blood continues to fester in the Penguin and Caps rivalry, takes less than a minute and we have Tom Wilson and Jamie Oleksiak dropping the gloves. This starts after Oleksiak hits a Capitals along the boards, Wilson skates right in on him dropping the gloves and grabbing him, Jamie drops his gloves too but Wilson starts with a barrage of right hands eventually catching him in the cheek with a shot that sends him down, Oleksiak was clearly dazed and needed help getting to the bench, this is a KO win for Wilson.

As soon as Wilson saw Oleksiak he went right to him and they drop the gloves. All Wilson and he dropped him with the KO. Not sure Oleksiak even had time to defend himself or land one punch before he went down in this quick fight These two teams do not like each other at all as Crosby and Ovechekin where yelling at each other from the benches right after the fight saying why don't you fight me?

This was awesome. The Pens GM was dumb enough to incite Wilson in the media last spring, and as you can see here, Wilson did not forget. He comes in hot on Oleksiak less than a minute into the game and pounds the big man into the ice. This was a great display of old school hockey, and something that is sorely missed in today's game. I hope Oleksiak is okay and suffers no long term effects, but he can thank his GM for the ass whooping. Too bad the he got rid of Ryan Reaves eh? KO win Wilson.

Wilson makes short work of Oleksiak with a flurry of rights with 1-2 landing before dropping him face first to ice with a sledge hammer right, Oleksiak gets up but in need of assistance standing, KO win Wilson.

Oleksiak asked Wilson to dance and this time it answer was okay. The fight itself was short as Wilson dropped O with a nice punch straight to jaw. Oleksiak was able to rise from the ice without help but was clearly dazed and did not return to the game.

He did, but Oleksiak should have been prepared. Impressive win nevertheless. It is times like this where Reaves would look nice on the bench, can never have nice things...

Unless you want a faceoff gloves drop this was a fair start.

I'm neutral to both teams, but this was simply a fight where everything landed from the get go.

Mid 1980's this was every Wendel Clark fight

Re-watching the fight. I don't think he did jump him. Just a quick simultaneous glove drop.Reply

So aren't the Penguins suppose to be revenging Wilson's hit in the playoffs? There was a time when the Penguins carried a half-dozen players that would have found a way to repay Wilson for what he did a la McCarty-Lemieux. Kudos to Wilson for getting it out of the way early but good lord, what has the NHL come to?Reply

No way this was a jumpstart. Oleksiak in fact threw a first weak punch and I think they talked before the glove drop.Reply

I can see the round two coming. Nothing against Wilson's performance and clear KO for him but I see the last punch bit of a lucky shot that sent Oleksiak down.Reply

He got a bit of a jump on him but Oleksiak got his gloves off just in time though he was unprepared.Reply
