Caps coach: Evgeni Malkin hit is kind NHL is trying to remove

Evgeni Malkin TJ Oshie

There has been some debate over the hit by Evgeni Malkin on TJ Oshie during Wednesday night’s Washington Capitals-Pittsburgh Penguins game, but there’s no doubt about where Todd Reirden stands on it.

The Washington Capitals head coach stated clearly after his team’s 2-1 win that Malkin’s hit on Oshie is the kind the league is trying to get rid of it.

Reirden also alluded to Tom Wilson, who is suspended 20 games for a preseason hit against the Blues.

Oshie, who scored the winning goal, said he didn’t care what happened to Malkin.

Regardless of how Oshie feels, there are others within the Caps who would like to see some punishment for Malkin.
