In the Washington Capitals‘ 4-2 win over the Montréal Canadiens on Monday night, forward Jakub Vrana extended his career-best point streak to nine games and also recorded his ninth multi-point game of the season.
Vrana had the primary assist on forward Tom Wilson’s power-play goal in the first period. It would improve his point streak to nine games.
