The Capitals’ four game road trip got off to a poor start on Thursday with a 6–2 loss in Vancouver.
Washington was without Nicklas Backstrom for the game due to an illness. His status isn’t yet available for Saturday but if he was a game-time decision on Thursday, it would seem likely he’ll lace them up for Edmonton.
The Caps may be without Brett Connolly, though. He started the game in Vancouver but didn’t finish, leaving early with some sort of upper body injury.
Some good news in the loss: Chandler Stephenson’s first career NHL goal. Welcome to the big-time, young fella.
Alexander Ovechkin failed to score for the second game in a row and fourth game out of his last five. This dry spell comes on the heels of nine goals in the first five games to start the season.
Edmonton snapped a three game home losing streak yesterday against Dallas when Matt Benning found the back of the net with two and a half minutes remaining in the game to break a 4–4 tie.
Prior, the Oilers had lost their last three home games and the last two games overall, which both came on the road.
Connor McDavid scored his fifth goal in the win over the Stars. He’s got five assists to go along with those handful of goals and is leading his team in scoring again. He’s now scored in two straight games after going 20 days without a goal. He opened the season with a hat-trick.
