The Washington Capitals came barreling into Edmonton on a four game winning streak, coming up against a team that hasn’t scored a goal in over 150 minutes of play. Could the Caps hot streak stay hot or is the cold streak for the Oilers over?
Darnell Nurse got the Oil on the board first with a flukey deflected pass. Jakub Vrana tied it up with a spin-o-rama wrister. Alex Ovechkin tipped home a point drive to give the Caps a lead and put one home on the power play to extend said lead. Leon Draisatl brought the Oilers back within one and Connor McDavid tied it.
Draisatl overtime winner.
Oilers beat Caps 4-3.
Since October 1, the Nationals have outscored the Redskins 62-30.

Onward to Vancouver for a date with Jay Beagle’s Canucks. The Caps will never play at home again.
