The Capitals finished up their western Canadian road trip in Vancouver…starting yesterday here on the east coast. The boys looked to make the trip a real successful one by grabbing another two points.
Evgeny Kuznetsov had a puck ricochet off a stanchion, hit him in the chest, and end up in the net to open the scoring. Kuzy would double the Caps lead only seconds later as he swept an Alex Ovechkin shot over the line.
Quinn Hughes got the Canucks on the board early in the third to cut the lead in half. Bo Horvat ripped one past Vitek Vanecek to tie the game and potted another soon after to give Vancouver the lead.
Kuznetsov finished off the hat trick on a late power play to force the game to overtime. Lars Eller overtime winner!
Capitals beat Canucks 4-3!
