Washington’s Tom Wilson was fined but not suspended for his actions through a post-whistle scrum at New York, a consequence that the Capitals are prepared to proceed from and the Rangers feel is not sufficient punishment for one of baseball’s most populous players.
The NHL fined Wilson $5,000 Tuesday for roughing Rangers ahead Pavel Buchnevich throughout the next period of a match Monday night in Madison Square Garden. The good news is the maximum allowable for the episode under the collective bargaining agreement, and Wilson wasn’t disciplined for projecting Artemi Panarin into the ice minutes afterwards.
“I know that it’s not my duty to make decisions, however that I simply can not feel that. I believe that it sends a terrible thought, in my view. I believe everyone agrees with all that.
Wilson has been given a double-minor punishment for a 10-minute misconduct.
“It is the field that is sent from the Celtics, and Tom can pay it and we will proceed,” said Capitals coach Peter Laviolette, who following the match called it a bodily drama that”occurs a lot”

“It seemed like they had been jamming in the goalie and Tom struck him at the cap of the shoulder region and then hit him someplace on the buttocks as he is attempting to get in there and pull off him and obtained the roughing penalty,” Laviolette added. “Then, he had a few guys jump onto his back and there was a significant scrum that went and ensued out there.”
Panarin was ruled from the rest of the match with what the team called a lower-body injury. Coach David Quinn stated Panarin will miss the last 3 matches of the Rangers year and also confirmed the injury came in the episode with Wilson, which will not induce the 27-year-old Capitals ahead to miss any moment.
“For me, anyone in baseball — surely everybody in our business — is quite disappointed,” Quinn stated. “We clearly thought it warranted a suspension. We are just very disappointed. A point was crossed: Guy did not have his helmet , vulnerable, so he got hurt. To mepersonally, it had been an awful lot to freeze him.”
