The questionable hit occurred 5:54 into the second period as the Islanders' defenseman was trying to play the puck behind his own net. Visnovsky did not have full control of the puck and Wilson caught him in the face with his shoulder as he came flying in for the hit. Wilson was given a two-minute charging penalty and Visnovsky left the game and did not return.
"He's an idiot," Okposo said, referring to Wilson. "The guy runs around and he just hits reckless. He leaves his feet and there's no place for that."
The hit on Visnovsky came 22 seconds after Wilson had just left the penalty box for kneeing Josh Bailey minutes earlier.
Head coach Jack Capuano did not have any update on VIsnovsky's healthy, but he did commend his defenseman for sticking with it when they went down a man.
"I thought our guys gave it everything they got back there," he said."But you're not going to play a sixty plus minute game. It gets real grueling on our defense. They played a lot of minutes and we had a lot of guys get play power play time too. I give them credit, but it's tough when you go down to five [defensemen] and I thought they did a pretty good job for us."
As for his thoughts on the hit, Capuano said he hadn't seen the replay of it. However, his initial reaction was that it was a bad hit.
"From the bench, my view he left his feet," the Islanders' coach said. "That's what I saw. I can't say any more than that because I really haven't viewed it, but that's what it looked like to me."
Tuesday's contest was the second time in the past two games that Visnovsky has had to leave the ice after a hit. On Sunday, he headed to the dressing room after being hit in the second period, but Visnovsky did return later in the game.
No word yet if the NHL's Department of Player Saftey will schedule any sort of hearing with Wilson.
