No need to Panik! Washington Capitals forward Richard Panik got his team on the board and scored his first career playoff goal during the second period of Monday’s round-robin opener at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto.

After trailing 2-0, the Capitals would get their first goal of the day by Panik 17:24 into the middle frame. Defenseman Radko Gudas and center Lars Eller assisted.

It marked Panik’s first career playoff goal. He posted 20 points (7 goals) in 36 games during the regular season.

    Panik has been stellar since Jan/Feb and is finally playing like his contract worth. Very glad to see him getting some scoring and assists here and there. The 1st, 3rd and 4th lines are ready as is Oshie. But where are Backstrom and Vrana??
