Tom Wilson's scrum with Pavel Buchnevich and Artemi Panarin was beneath him

But what happened Monday night wasn’t what Quinn said “happens over and over again” to Wilson. Wilson isn’t afraid to fight to defend his teammates, but that’s usually not what causes trouble. Here it was avoidable. Given the status of his team’s compromised lineup, not to mention Buchnevich’s position on the ice below him, it would have been easy and appropriate for Wilson to just lie there and put his 6-foot-4,220-pound frame on top of him to press.
