The first period of the Caps-Yotes game featured five shots and lots of yawns. 5:40 into the second period, the Caps finally broke through. TJ Oshie scored his 11th goal of the season after a slick individual play by Jakub Vrana.

Vrana’s hustle and speed created the play. After forcing goaltender Scott Wedgewood to play the puck after beating out an icing call, Evgeny Kuznetsov gathered the puck in and found Vrana on the door step.
After getting rejected on his first shot, Vrana gathered in the rebound and hit Oshie with a no-look pass from just outside the crease. Oshie went top shelf for the goal.
The assist was Vrana’s fourth in five games.
Despite missing a big chunk of games in December due to a concussion, Oshie is third on the Capitals in goals.
