The Washington Capitals concluded their 2019 Devolpment Camp with a scrimmage, which the red-sweatered team beat the white-sweatered one in a shootout by a score of 3-2. Center Connor McMichael, the team’s first-round pick in the 2019 NHL Draft, scored a goal and struck once again in the shootout.

Lines For Scrimmage

First Half

Forward Eric Florchuk tucked in a wraparound attempt after getting fed by center Riley Sutter near the wall to open the scoring for the white team. That would be all of the scoring for the half.

Some notes from the first half:

Second Half

McMichael tied the game, putting one five-hole on the backhand past goaltender Beck Warm.

Center Garrett Pilon broke the tie for the red squad on a nifty play.

Center Riley Sutter would level the score to force 3-on-3 overtime but that would not be enough to break the tie. The scrimmage would go to a shootout.

Shootout

McMichael beat Warm top corner after waiting him out to give the White team the lead.

Forward Cal Burke evened the score for Team Red on a silky move.

Team Red would go on to win 3-2.

Some notes from the final half and the game:
