Barry Trotz to Islanders’ Boulton: Capitals’ Wilson ‘not scared of anybody’

“I told (Wilson) before the game there’s only one reason (Boulton) is in the lineup and I don’t want him to fight him,” Trotz told CSN Washington’s Chuck Gormley.

“I said, ‘I need for you to play,'” Trotz added. “I also told him if (Boulton) is on the ice with you, you’ve got to be involved. You don’t want to get jumped. If he’s coming at you and you can’t get out of it you’ve got to go at it.

“But I told him to back off and play. He’s not scared of anybody or anything. I just need him to play.”
