The Washington Capitals were right back into the fray after the holiday break against a Metro Division foe in the Columbus Blue Jackets that they have to solve so far this season. Would the puzzle finally get put together for the good guys?
Jakob Lilja opened the scoring in the second with his first career NHL marker. Carl Hagelin’s first of the season tied the game at one. TJ Oshie mercifully downs Columbus in overtime.
Caps beat Blue Jackets 2-1!

Next up for the Caps is a quick turnaround in Carolina as they’ll meet the ever annoying Canes in the back half of this back-to-back.
