Newly acquired Lars Eller notched his first career goal in Capitals garb, giving the Capitals a 2-1 win over the Islanders on Saturday night.
Eller’s power play goal, like the Capitals first goal in the game, was setup by a nifty dish from Justin Williams.

The call from John Walton:
The win was the first of the preseason for the Capitals. The Caps are back on the ice Monday night at Verizon Center when they host the St. Louis Blues.
