Wilson's return sparks Capitals in 5-2 win over Wild

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) The Washington Capitals woke up in Minnesota for the start of a four-game road trip with a pleasant surprise: Tom Wilson was back.

So was the vigor for the Stanley Cup champions, who've started their title-defense season rather slowly.

Wilson returned early from his player-safety suspension and scored a first-period goal, helping the Capitals cool off the Wild with a 5-2 victory on Tuesday night.
