E-mail WASHINGTON (AP) Nico Hischier Jersey , Washington Capitals forward Tom Wilson is an expert when it comes to knowing what the NHL looks for when punishing someone for a dangerous hit, and he thinks Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Anton Stralman could be in trouble.Wilson, who served a three-game suspension earlier this postseason, spoke out about the way Stralman slammed him into the glass in the first period of what turned into a 4-2 victory for Tampa Bay over Washington in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference final on Tuesday night.Stralman was sent to the penalty box for boarding on the play.Its a vulnerable position. Theres no doubt theres contact with my head. If Im wearing a helmet from five years ago, I think Im probably unconscious. So well see what they say, Wilson said, referring to the possibility of the leagues department of player safety reviewing the matter.On the play, Wilson was facing the glass not too far from the Capitals bench when Stralman hit him from behind. Wilson dropped to the ice and put his right glove to his helmet.After the game, which allowed the Lightning to cut their series deficit to 2-1, Wilson talked about the goose egg on the side of my head and acknowledged Dan Hamhuis Jersey Womens , It took me a little bit to collect myself.He said the hit included everything Ive heard all year: He sees (jersey) numbers for a good amount of time, and he elevates through the back of my shoulder and head.Capitals coach Barry Trotz referred to those as red flags, and added, I understand where Toms coming from, no question.Thats a lot of `donts for me. From what theyve been telling me, thats a lot of `donts. If I make that hit, 100 percent Im probably sitting out. So well see. Its playoffs. Its an intense time of year, Wilson said. I dont think hes a malicious player, at all. But its a pretty dangerous hit. I think a lot of people will say that.The game was scoreless at the time of that hit, but Tampa Bay would go on to take a 3-0 lead en route to the victory. Wilson thought that Stralmans play might have set a tone that affected the way play went.(When) someone gets run from behind Youth Pavel Zacha Jersey , for the next couple shifts, you might be a little more tentative coming back for pucks, Wilson said. Weve got to play through it. Theres going to be emotion.Senior vice president of player safety George Parros was at Tuesdays game. During the season, Parros and Wilson met for about an hour to go over video clips of various hits so the player could understand what the league is watching for.During Washingtons elimination of two-time reigning Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh in the second round of the playoffs, Wilson missed three games after breaking Penguins rookie Zach Aston-Reeses jaw in a violent collision.Wilson also was forced to sit out two preseason games following a late hit on an opponent, then was suspended for the first four games of the regular season for boarding a player shortly after his return. GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) Lukas Radil isnt a typical NHL rookie at age 28, with plenty of experience in Russia and his native Czech Republic.Still, there was something special about his first NHL goal, which broke a tie with 5:47 to play in the San Jose Sharks 5-3 win over the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday night.Radil Authentic Taylor Hall Jersey , playing in just his sixth game of the season after signing with San Jose in April, scored on a backhand wrapround shot as the Sharks blew a 3-0 lead but got their third win in four games.Ive had a dream to play in the NHL and its a dream come true to score a goal and help the team win, Radil said before being presented with the puck from his goal in a largely empty visitors locker room. I really appreciated the Sharks giving me the chance.Joe Pavelski, Logan Couture, Evander Kane and Tomas Hertl also scored for San Jose. Aaron Dell, playing for the first time since Nov. 28, stopped 17 shots.Brad Richardson had a goal and assist, and Nick Schmaltz and Richard Panik also scored for Arizona. Adin Hill made 28 saves. After a four-game win streak, the Coyotes have lost two straight.Paniks sixth goal of the season tied it at 3 at 5:45 of the third as his shot wobbled through Dells pads.The Coyotes pulled Hill with about a minute to play, but Hertl scored an empty-net goal with 51 seconds to play.We played hard. Were right there Womens Will Butcher Jersey , Coyotes coach Rick Tocchet said. Were a little depleted but guys gave it their all.The Sharks upped their league-leading first-period goal total to 39 with two less than a minute apart. Pavelski re-directed Brenden Dillons long-distance shot with his skate with 5:24 left in the opening period. It was Pavelskis team-high 19th of the season.Fifty seconds later, Hertl passed to Couture on a breakout, and Couture pump-faked before burying a backhand under Hills legs for his 10th to make it 2-0.We found a way to win, were a little fragile but at the same time, I didnt think we gave them a whole lot, Sharks coach Peter DeBoer said. I think theres a lot more good than bad, but still some work to do.Kane won a race against Arizonas Jordan Oesterle for a loose puck and took it in on his own for the Sharks third goal, at 5:10 of the second period. But the Sharks couldnt put away the Coyotes.They got some lucky bounces, Id say, Kane said. Tough to give up a three-goal lead again http://www.officialislanders.com/authentic-adidas-adam-pelech-jersey , but good sticking with it. Im getting some chances here and there and theyre going in.Arizona got on the board on its only power play of the night. Clayton Keller didnt get off a quality shot from in front, but the puck found Schmaltz waiting near the net for a tap-in at 6:55 of the second.Schmaltz has six points in six games with the Coyotes since being acquired in a trade on Nov. 26.Richardson got a stick on Jakob Chychruns shot for his eighth at 10:43, making it 3-2. Richardsons eight goals are tied for most on the Coyotes.NOTES: F Conor Garland, called up from AHL Tucson last Monday, made his NHL debut for Arizona. C Vinnie Hinostroza is week-to-week with a lower-body injury he suffered against Washington on Thursday and was placed on injured reserve. Radil replaced Antti Suomela in the lineup. Suomela missed his fourth game of the season. Sharks C Joe Thornton passed Steve Yzerman for 18th place on the all-time NHL games played list, reaching 1,515 on Saturday. Former Coyotes player and 17-year NHL veteran Cliff Ronning dropped the ceremonial first puck.UP NEXTSharks: Host New Jersey on Monday night.Coyotes: At Boston on Tuesday night to open a four-game East Coast road trip.
