The Washington Capitals’ power play reached a grim milestone against the San Jose Sharks on Monday night.
After the team’s first futile power play against the Sharks, the Capitals passed an hour of man advantage time since they last scored. The team finished 0 for 3 on the power play against the league-worst Sharks, pushing their PP scoreless streak to 1 hour, five minutes, and 15 seconds.
The last time the Capitals scored on the power play was over a month ago on October 27 against the Minnesota Wild. Dylan Strome lit the lamp on Marc-Andre Fleury 17 minutes and 14 seconds into the first period of the game, giving the Caps a 2-1 lead.
The PP scoreless streak then began on the team’s next power play after that coming via a Pat Maroon interference call on Rasmus Sandin.
