Columbus Blue Jackets (17-14-6 40pts) v. Washington Capitals (26-7-5 57pts)

 

Game Recap:

Coming back from the three day holiday break the Washington Capitals would play host to their Metro Division rival Columbus Blue Jackets, and would look to avenge their two previous loses this season to Columbus. After a scoreless first period that would see Ilya Samsonov make some huge saves for the Capitals, it would be the Jackets striking first as Jakob Lilja would score his first career NHL goal to give Columbus the 1-0 lead.

 

The in the third period after another failed powerplay attempt the Capitals would finally get on the board as Carl Hagelin would attack the crease and get the puck past Joonas Korpisalo to score his first of the season, and tie the game at one a piece, and force overtime. In the extra frame the Capitals would be buzzing as they would hem in the Jackets in their own zone, and draw a penalty to take the extra man advantage. Then on the powerplay TJ Oshie would knock in the loose puck to take the 2-1 victory for the Capitals.
