Capitals call up RWs Joey Crabb and Tom Wilson ahead of Game 5 vs. Rangers

ARLINGTON, Va. - The Washington Capitals have called up right wings Joey Crabb and Tom Wilson from Hershey of the AHL ahead of Friday's Game 5 against the New York Rangers.

Crabb and Wilson joined the Capitals on Thursday. The Capitals-Rangers series is tied at two games apiece.

The Capitals needed a right wing after Martin Erat suffered an upper body injury in Game 4. Coach Adam Oates said Erat was undergoing an MRI and will probably miss Friday's game.

The 30-year-old Crabb had two goals and eight penalty minutes in 26 games with Washington this season.

The 19-year-old Wilson made his professional debut last week in the AHL playoffs. The No. 16 overall pick in the 2012 draft had one goal and six penalty minutes in three playoff games with Hershey.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
