Isabelle Khurshudyan tweet,

Wilson on Dumoulin hit: “It wasn’t a body check to the head. I think I graze his head as I’m skating by him and as he’s getting hit by Ovi. If you watch it from multiple angles, you don’t see me like lunge into his head or anything.”

Give me a break.

No fan of the Pens obviously, but Wilson is PoS career cheapshot artist.

No, Tom, you don’t need to “lunge or anything” when you are going in
to pick the side of the head with your shoulder.

It’s easily visible that Dumoulin’s head turns sharply and with force upon
direct contact from Wilson’s shoulder, then Ovechkin comes in with additional contact
and there is some between Ovechkin’s head and Dumoulin’s.

But it’s Wilson’s intentional head shot - no he didn’t just “graze” Dumoulin -  that
should have been penalized. And given Wilson’s long record of cheapshots in his young career, he should at least miss a game or two.

Is the league at all serious about policing intentional initial contact to the head or not?

The reffing in this game was nothing short of terrible.
