While the Washington Capitals3-0 win over the New Jersey Devils on Friday night was not as entertaining as the past few games have been, at least there was one play that got fans out of their seats. Forward Andre Burakovsky extended his goal-scoring streak to three consecutive games while earning his 11th of the season in the process 2:40 into the contest.

Exiting the defensive zone, Burakovsky fed center Travis Boyd who raced into the offensive zone. He dropped the puck back to defenseman Michal Kempny, who hesitated and faked a shot before giving it to Burakovsky, who finished a nice three-way passing-play by putting it blocker side on Devils goaltender Mackenzie Blackwood.

Burakovsky was credited with a point for the sixth time in the past seven games. He now sits one goal behind his total from each of the past two seasons, which were set in 64 games and 56 games respectively. The goal came on the Capitals’ first shot of the game.

John Walton with the call on Caps Radio:

The Capitals look to tie their season-high winning streak of seven games when they host the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday night at 7 PM ET. They enter Saturday two points ahead of the New York Islanders in the Metropolitan Division standings, though the Islanders now have a game in hand on the Capitals.
