During the 2020-21 season, forward Daniel Sprong emerged as a potential impact player for the Washington Capitals, impressing with offensive skill and good skating ability. During the second period of the Capitals’ game against the New Jersey Devils, Sprong showed that skillset by scoring his first goal of the 2021-22 season.

With the Caps already leading the Devils 2-0 at Prudential Center in Newark, Sprong found himself in all alone on New Jersey netminder Scott Wedgewood after poking the puck past New Jersey defender Dougie Hamilton and using his speed to create space, putting the puck five-hole on a nice finish, unassisted.

The goal marked Sprong’s first goal of the new campaign and fourth career marker against New Jersey. Sprong recorded an assist on Anthony Mantha’s first period goal that gave the Caps the lead.
