The Caps got back into action on Thursday night against the Devils in New Jersey.
Drew Stafford opened the scoring about eight minutes into the game with a breakaway goal. Just a few minutes later, Brett Connolly tied the game after TJ Oshie gamed his Corsi.
Early in the second, Andy Greene (of all people) put home a knuckling puck to put the home team back on top. Miles Wood got behind the snoozing Caps D off a draw and scored on a breakaway to make the game 3-1. Dmitry Orlov responded immediately with a mondo slapshot to bring the Caps back within one.
With less than five minutes left, Brett Connolly put home a sweet dish from Evgeny Kuznetsov to tie the game at three.
Taylor Hall did Taylor Hall things in overtime.
Caps lose 4-3.
4th line player takes a penalty 200 feet from his own net with his team down 1 goal halfway through the third. Unrelated: what’s Burakovsky up to?
