Jakub Vrana scores big breakaway goal after getting benched by Peter Laviolette: ‘Guys got to compete hard to play hard’
The Washington Capitals got off to a rare good start during an afternoon game against the New Jersey Devils. The Caps scored three goals in the first 13:40 of the first period, seeming like they’d cruise to an easy victory over the second-worst-in-the-East Devils. Instead, they turtled in the second and watched New Jersey score two unanswered goals. The third didn’t go much better until THE SNEK struck.
After being benched for most of the second period, Vrana returned in the third and scored on a breakaway.
The goal sapped the Devils of momentum. And while it wasn’t the game-winner, [wink] we know who really iced the game.
