Washington Capitals forward Tom Wilson will be a game-time decision for Game 2 of the first-round Stanley Cup playoff series against the Florida Panthers after suffering a lower-body injury in Game 1 on Tuesday.
Capitals coach Peter Laviolette said Wilson is getting treatment Wednesday.
Wilson’s goal in the first period opened the scoring in the Capitals’ 4-2 win, but he left shortly after. It was not clear how he was injured. He came back to take a few laps around the ice during a TV timeout, then left again and did not return.
Wilson scored 24 goals and 52 points in the regular season while averaging 18:35 per game.
The No. 8 seed Capitals take a 1-0 series lead into Game 2 against the Presidents’ Trophy-winning Panthers in Sunrise, Fla.
