Capitals’ Wilson avoids discipline for hit on Dumoulin

Washington Capitals forward Tom Wilson won't have a hearing for his hit on Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Brian Dumoulin in Game 2, the NHL confirmed Monday to ESPN's Greg Wyshynski.

The incident occurred early in the second period on Sunday and saw no penalty called. Meanwhile, Dumoulin didn't return to the game.

The decision not to suspend Wilson means the 24-year-old will be in the lineup for Game 3 in Pittsburgh on Tuesday night.
