Washington Capitals forward Conor Sheary has proven to be a smart signing by General Manager Brian MacLellan during the pandemic-shortened 2020-21 season. During the Capitals’ April 11 tilt against the Boston Bruins, the hard-working forward recorded his second multi-goal game of the season with two goals during the first two periods of play.

Sheary’s first goal came at the 9:42 mark of the first period, on a beautiful passing sequence from Daniel Sprong and Dmitry Orlov.

Sheary’s second goal came during a goal-happy second period for the Caps, scoring the first of three more Capitals goals just 4:41 in, on assists from Tom Wilson and Jakub Vrana.

The goal was Sheary’s 10th of the 2020-21 season, and continued a consistent string of goal-scoring for the former Pittsburgh Penguin and Buffalo Sabre, marking his fifth consecutive campaign with 10 goals. The Winchester, Massachusetts native has a career-high of 23 goals, which came during his second NHL season with the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2016-17.
