The Capitals went to Edmonton coming off of a very poor showing in Vancouver looking for a big two road points. They got those two points in a 5-2 victory over the Oilers on the backs of some great goaltending and some unlikely scoring sources.
The Oilers out attempted the Capitals 62 to 53 at five-on-five and outshot the Capitals 40 to 31. Some of that shot discrepancy can be explained by the four power plays the Oilers had to the Caps zero.
