Here are the Talking Points from the Boston Bruins 6-3 win over the Washington Capitals at TD Garden on Sunday afternoon. (Boston Hockey Now)

Washington Capitals winger Tom Wilson is a former first-round draft pick, a player who can score, defend teammates, and impact the game with bone-crunching hits.

While there is always a lot of attention placed on the Vegas Golden Knights top six forwards, the second half of the lineup has not-so-quietly been making its mark for the team over the course of a six-game win streak. Once again on Sunday in a 5-2 win over the Anaheim Ducks, the bottom six forwards chipped in offensively. Nic Roy scored for the third time in four games and Alex Tuch sealed the victory into an empty net for his 16th goal of the season, also his third in the last four games. (Vegas Hockey Now)
