Jakub Vrana reached Peak V status against the Philadelphia Flyers, Tuesday night.
Once an off-and-on healthy scratch during the Barry Trotz regime, the Czech forward registered his first career three-point night in the Caps’ 5-3 victory over the Flyers. Vrana’s two goals against Philly gave him a new career high of 14 in 31 fewer games than last year.
How has the 22-year-old Vrana improved? “Just the little details,” he said to NBC Sports Washington’s Al Koken after the game. “Being around those guys, it’s great. We have a great group of guys here and that’s making me a better hockey player.”
It’s also making him a happy hockey player.
