With Tom Wilson facing suspension, Chandler Stephenson defended his Capitals teammate, saying it was "just a hockey hit" Wilson laid on Blues center Oskar Sundqvist.
"They don't want you going at the head, just to protect the players. Hitting high or anything like that," he said. "Keep your hands down, elbows, things like that. But, I mean, that helps Tom's cause a whole lot I think that he has no concussion and that it is his shoulder. But we still gotta wait to see, and yeah, it's a tough one to lose him. He's a huge part of our team."
If Wilson receives any suspension at all, it could be substantial.
