The Capitals have had only one goalscorer on their defense this season, but he’s scored again tonight. With moves you might not expected from a 7th round draft pick rookie defenseman, Christian Djoos got the Caps on the scoreboard late in the second of a miserable game.
During a rare moment of even-strength play, Nicklas Backstrom had the puck deep in the Panthers’ zone. He gets it to Djoos, who moves to the slot, undressing a couple white sweaters in the process.

With that fake towards the net, Djoos got enough space in the slot for a nice release. Excellent patience here.
That play earned a plus for this vintage, dependable Caps forward trio.

JK, that’s a weird group of forwards.
Djoos has two goals this season. His first came in his first game on his very first shot.
