Only goalies with multiple wins against the Oilers so far this season: Charlie Lindgren Vitek Vanecek
Aliaksei Protas makes a veteran play, losing control of the puck for a second on a breakaway and rather than force the shot he finds a streaking Nic Dowd right behind him for the score. Capitals take a 3-2 lead with 12:47 to go in the third.
Strong passing play by the Capitals results in an Oshie power play goal right in front. Kuznetsov fires a bullet to Strome behind the net who immediately kicks it over to Oshie in the low slot. Tied back up 2-2.
Erik Gustafsson was on the receiving end of a cross-check from Evan Bouchard and he immediately skated off to ice to head to the locker room. Capitals go to the PP, but they’re down a defenseman for the time being.
FINAL | Caps 3, Oilers 2 The Capitals fend off an Oilers pulled-goalie flurry of offense to hold on for the win. Down’s third period goal proves to be the game-winner as WSH outshot Edmonton 50-30.
END OF 2 | Caps 2, Oilers 2 Four goals scored in the second period but the two teams remain tied. WSH leads in SOG 41-19.
Connor McDavid gets a shorthanded breakaway intercepting a pass by John Carlson and he beats Lindgren through the five hole. 2-1 Oilers.
Lars Eller makes one of his best plays with the stick all year, getting the puck all alone in front of Skinner and scoring with a nifty move to fake him out. It’s 1-1 about midway through the second.
