Heading into their final late-night game of the season, the Capitals were looking to keep their momentum headed in the right direction after a win against the Colorado Avalanche. Down 1-0 nearing the end of the second period, forward Carl Hagelin got the Caps off to a good start by scoring to tie the game.

Hagelin’s goal came at the 17:10 mark of the second period, with 2:50 left to play. Scoring his fifth goal of the 2019-20 season on assists from Travis Boyd and Richard Panik (a former Coyote), Hagelin knotted the game at 1-1 to send the two teams into the second intermission with one lamp lighted each.

The goal gave Hagelin his 18th point of the season (five goals, 13 assists) in 47 games played, and nine points in his last 11 contests, at a time when the Capitals’ third-line (normally consisting of Hagelin, Panik, and Lars Eller) have arguably been the team’s best line.
