As mentioned, it marked his third goal of the season. The Herndon, Virginia, native now has six points (3g, 3a) in eight career games.
That marks the 34th time this season the Capitals have scored the game’s first goal, which leads the NHL. The Caps are 20-9-4 this season when they score the game’s first goal.
