The Washington Capitals matched up with the team that many believe could be the best in the East Division and took them down in a spirited, shootout effort 2-1. This was some pretty fantastic hockey from the road warring Caps.
The Caps outshot the Bruins 28 to 19 and out-attempted them at five-on-five 41 to 36.
Since Feb. 16 Vitek Vanecek is 5-1-1 with a 1.84 goals against average and a .928 save percentage. During that span, he ranks tied for first in the NHL in wins, third in goals against average and sixth in save percentage among goaltenders with at least five games played.
