The Caps downed the Sabres last night by a score of 4-1. Jakub Vrana scored his first NHL goal and Philipp Grubauer was again strong between the pipes. Perhaps the most encouraging news to come out of this win is the Caps converted two out of their three power play opportunities (and were successful killing four our of their five penalties). As we wrote about yesterday, special teams play has been the weak link for the team this season.
Here’s a look at some numbers from the win.
Tom Wilson: 50.7 CF%, 8.3 shot attempts/60, Games: 25
Brett Connolly: 57.8 CF%, 10.8 shot attempts/60, Games: 15
