The Washington Capitals came into tonight’s action on a five game winning streak. Standing in their way of six was the Vegas Golden Knights.
Evgeny Kuznetsov struck lightning quick on the breakaway to open the scoring. Tom Wilson stayed hot and put the Caps up two early. Max Pacioretty grabbed one back off a faceoff. Jonas Siegenthaler slotted home his first NHL goal to restore the two goal lead for a very short time before Reilly Smith’s power play goal.
Nicklas Backstrom added some insurance in the third twice.
Caps beat Golden Knights 5-2!

The Arizona Coyotes are up next for the Caps. The Coyotes had me blocked on Twitter at one point for almost a full year even though I had never interacted with them.
