The Washington Capitals looked to match their season-best four-game win streak by taking down the Oilers, Wednesday night. Could Ovi and the boys keep McDavid and co. quiet?
Nicklas Backstrom opened the scoring with a spinning backhand that found its way through Mikko Koskinen. Kailer Yamamoto tied the game later in the second on a power play. Cody Ceci placed a chip shot into the top shelf to give Edmonton a lead.
TJ Oshie tied things back up with a power-play strike of his own that earned Nicklas Backstrom point number 1,000!
Brad Malone quickly restored the Oilers lead. TJ Oshie buzzer-beater to send the game to overtime! McDavid winner.
Oilers beat Capitals 4-3.

If I ever happened to meet Keanu, I'd wanna talk goalie stuff and motorcycles. pic.twitter.com/cPwE4SEiCB

The Capitals finish up their western Canadian road swing with a visit to Bruce Boudreau’s boys in Vancouver, Friday. Take a good look at a couple of those Vancouver forwards.
