Trade deadline acquisition Anthony Mantha registered his first point as a Capital in the first period. He scored his first Capitals goal in the second.
Curling to the middle of the ice, Mantha ripped a wrist shot that beat Brian Elliott in a hurry. It was Mantha’s 12th goal in 43 games this season.
