The Caps handled the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday night, recording a badly needed win and welcoming home a beloved fan fave.
TJ Oshie forced a turnover then scored on a rebound to open scoring in the first period. The second went scoreless, which is the word we use when no one scores even if the game has a score, which obviously it did, it was 1-0 Caps. Brett Connolly crashed the net in the third period to get his first goal in 13 games, but Markus Granlund replied by catching a nice pass from Antoine Roussel to get the Canucks on the board a couple minutes later. Jakub Vrana put the Nucks back in their two-goal hole with a weird, weird goal. Elias Pettersson got a goal with the Nucks net empty, but it was over.
Caps win 3-2!
