The Washington Capitals wanted to quickly put their late collapse against the Oilers in the rear view and had an opportunity on Friday night to do so against the Vancouver Canucks. Also go Nats!
Evgeny Kuznetsov was the benefactor of some Canucks scrambling to kick things off. Brock Boeser grabbed the goal back soon after and Tim Schaller slotted another home shorthanded. Elias Pettersson sniped one home to give Vancouver a two goal lead, Schaller got his second out of mid air, and Virtanen made it five for the Nucks.
Kuznetsov put away a buzzer beater, Lars Eller got his own shortie to bring the Caps even closer, and Michal Kempny blasted two home soon after to tie things up.
Caps beat Canucks 6-5!
