The Noon Number: Typical Tommy

NHL: Washington Capitals at Minnesota Wild Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

8 - Number of games in his career in which Tom Wilson has scored a goal and earned (or “earned”, depending on the situation) at least five minutes in penalties. While he’s still got a ways to go to catch Dale Hunter, the incontrovertible franchise leader in that department, last night moved Wilson into a tie with Alan May for fourth in Caps history (since 87-88) - and he does catch Hunter when it comes to 1+ goal/7+ PIM games thanks to his performance against the Wild.
