With the NHL on hiatus, every hockey fan misses watching their favorite team play, especially in the midst of what was supposed to be playoff season.
As a Caps fan, you probably miss watching the crushing hits and goal-scoring prowess of Tom Wilson, so we decided to air four of his best games all day Sunday. You're welcome.
Beginning at 9 a.m., NBC Sports Washington will air four of Wilson's best games with the Caps, beginning with his game-winning overtime goal in Game 1 of the 2017 playoffs against the Toronto Maple Leafs. After going down by two goals early on, the Caps came back to tie it up at 2 in the second period, and the third ended in a stalemate forcing overtime. After six minutes of overtime, a bounce came Wilson's way on the right-side circle and he put it past Frederik Andersen on a slapshot to win the game 3-2 for the Caps.
At 11:30 a.m., watch Wilson net two goals and secure two assists in the Caps' monster 6-2 win over the Chicago Blackhawks on December 6, 2017. Wilson's four points that game was a career-high.
Wilson is just so good against his hometown team, two Maple Leafs games had to make the cut. The February 21, 2019 game features a shorthanded goal and an assist from Wilson to lead the Caps to a 3-2 victory.
The game in the lineup airing at 4:30 p.m. features another overtime game-winning goal from Wilson. The game from this season, on November 7, 2019 against the Florida Panthers, highlights Wilson's game-tying goal in the third period to put the Caps up 4-4 early on. The remainder of the period featured Braden Holtby standing on his head for the Caps, and chances for both teams to take the lead, but it went to overtime. Wilson won the game for the Caps 5-4 after a beautiful pass from John Carlson to put them over the top in Florida.
All four of Wilson's best games will certainly keep you occupied this Sunday.
