The Caps had a 1-0 and 3-2 lead against Pittsburgh, before winning in overtime on Thursday. T.J. Oshie had a dominant performance with three goals to lead the Caps. Washington didn't play that well on the defensive end but dominated overtime and still managed the win. Once again, the difference is in goal with Braden Holtby over rookie Matt Murray, who was shaky on several goals.
