A full day after their last game, the Capitals hit the road and faced off against the Hurricanes in North Carolina. The Capitals had a slow start and Lucas Wallmark opened the scoring for the game, bringing the Hurricanes into the second period leading 1-0.
Warren Foegele opened the second period and scored his seventh goal of the season. But, Nic Dowd wasn’t too far behind to give the Capitals their first goal of the evening and his fourth goal of the season. The Canes grabbed one back and Alex Ovechkin scored a quick power play goal after coming up slowly after a kneeing penalty. Foegele sealed the high scoring second period with a final goal to bring the game into the third period with Carolina up 4-2.
Evgeny Kuznetsov opened the third period with a power play goal. Of course, the Canes came back with a goal right after and there was an empty netter, but there was also a final lightning goal from Radko Gudas!
Canes beat Caps 6-4.
