With his Washington Capitals already up by a commanding 3-0 lead (thanks in part to a shorthanded, penalty shot goal from Marcus Johansson), Center Lars Eller padded the lead for his club by scoring his sixth goal of the 2022-23 regular season.

The goal comes in Eller’s 900th NHL game, and marks his second consecutive game with a goal.

Eller is also one point shy of tying the Jets’ Nikolaj Ehlers for the second-most Points by a Danish-born player in NHL history (361).
