Starting off his fourth NHL season hot, Jakub Vrana has scored in back-to-back games.
Beating new Isles goalie Semyon Varlamov in the first period of Friday’s game, Vrana put a speedy wrist shot on net.
Set free by temporary second-line center Lars Eller, Vrana stayed outside the slot until he got to the faceoff circles. There he wristed to beat the ex-Caps goalie, who didn’t look very sharp on the play.
Vrana scored 24 goals last season. Through four periods of 2019-20, he’s at two and counting. Watch out.
