The Preds visited DC on Thursday night for the Caps’ 81st game of the season.
Craig Smith scored a PP goal less than five minutes in to put Nashville ahead.
Alex Ovechkin scored from the Alex Ovechkin spot to tie the game in the second. A few minutes later, Evgeny Kuznetsov scored on the PP to give the good guys a 2-1 lead. Craig Smith scored again in the second to tie this baby up.
Evgeny Kuznetsov did ridiculous Evgeny Kuznetsov things to give the Caps a 3-2 lead in the third. But Roman Josi tied it on the PP. Ryan Johansen gave the Preds a lead late in the third.
Caps lose 4-3.
Trotz on DSP today: “I think he’s a playoff-type of guy for us.” He’s been experimenting with DSP on Eller’s line, but Smith-Pelly doesn’t have a point since Feb. 11. Eller doesn’t have a point since Smith-Pelly started playing with him.
