Sans Ovi, the Washington Capitals managed to get their power play productive in the first period of Monday’s game in Montreal.
The goal came courtesy of Tom Wilson, with a gorgeous assist from new PP boy Jakub Vrana.
After one power play sputtered earlier in the period, the Caps got a second shot when Evgeny Kuznetsov drew a slash from Max Domi. Washington got to work, getting in formation and then improvising. Below the goal line, Vrana gathered the puck and sent it into the slot where Wilson was waiting.

“That’s what happens when you play with some pretty good players,” Wilson said at intermission.
Wilson now has 15 goals on the season. Vrana, meanwhile, now has his eighth power-play assist. How about that.
Wilson has points in four straight games (2g, 2a), his second separate point streak of at least four games this season (five games: Nov. 1 to Nov. 11; 4g, 4a).
