Caps younger-than-young-gun Jakub Vrana has cracked open a miserably tight game between the New Jersey Devils and the Washington Capitals.
His second career goal couldn’t have come at a better time.

The second unit took the ice near the end of a power play in the third period. Along the half wall, Evgeny Kuznetsov sent the puck into traffic in the slot. It got knocked down, but Vrana jumped on it. He moved spritely to the side, then sunk it top-shelf behind Cory Schneider.
What a celly.
It was a Marcus Johanssonian goal. It made the score 1-0. It would stand up as the game-winning tally, Vrana’s second of his career.
Vrana’s first goal came on December 9. It was also on the power play, and it was also assisted by Marcus Johansson.
The future is bright.
