Washington Capitals forward Conor Sheary had himself a night in the 6-1 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday at Capital One Arena. The 28-year-old picked up three points, which includes his 11th goal of the season.

Sheary opened tonight’s scoring 7:07 into the first period, giving the Capitals a 1-0 lead. Forward Daniel Sprong and center Lars Eller assisted.

As mentioned, the goal marks his eleventh of the season and third in his last two games.

His second point of the night would come as the primary assist — his seventh assist this season — on forward Tom Wilson’s power-play goal that extended the Capitals’ lead 2-0.

Captain Alex Ovechkin put the Capitals ahead 6-1 with a power-play goal just over five minutes into the final frame. Sheary recorded the secondary assist and notched his eighth assist thus far.

His third point of the night marked his first three-point game of the season.

Additionally, Sheary is one of five different Capitals players to have scored a power-play goal over the last four games ( Ovechkin: 2; forward T.J. Oshie: 2; Wilson: 2; center Nicklas Backstrom: 1; Sheary: 1). Sheary also earned the first star in the “Three Stars of the Game.”
