Capitals

Capitals right winger Tom Wilson had to get tended to by Washington's medical staff after taking a skate to the back of the head on Saturday against Nashville. 

While diving for the puck during the third period, the skate of Nashville's Viktor Arvidsson swung around and caught the back of Wilson's head or neck as Wilson, too, was sprawled out on the ice. 

He made his way to the bench and was patched up there.
