Tom Wilson's Skate Blade Falls Off, His Comical Journey To The Bench
DC Sports Nexus ---- Sunday, May 12, 2013
During the Caps vs Rangers game 6 at Madison Square Garden, Caps rookie Tom Wilson, playing in just his second career NHL game, checked a Rangers player into the boards behind the Ranger's goal and the blade of his skate broke off.
Wilson was trapped far away from his bench with no way to skate back...here is Wilson bumbling and stumbling, trying to make his way to the freedom of his bench. It's all good when you don't get hurt! Check it out!
My favorite part was at the end when it looks like Chimera pushes Wilson's rear end to give him the final boost to the bench. Wilson was shown laughing on the bench afterwards. What a second game.
