The Washington Capitals struggled to get their act together early against the Philadelphia, but Andre Burakovsky came to the rescue in the second.
All alone in Philly zone, and all of a sudden we’ve got a Caps hockey game going.

It was a broken clear by the Philadelphia penalty killers. Michael Del Zotto half-whiffed, and Burakovsky pounced.
A quick move down the slot, and that’s it. Burakovsky’s sixth goal this season, unassisted unless you count MDZ as a double agent. Burakovsky has seven points in his last 13 games.
Burakovsky followed that up promptly with a nasty hit on Pierre-Edouard Bellemare, right along the boards.
Sixty five is doing everything today.
