Instead, the opening faceoff went off without a hitch, and the Capitals jumped to a 1-0 lead with T.J. Oshie’s power-play goal 4:39 in. Justin Schultz scored Washington’s second goal of the night, and 19-year-old Hendrix Lapierre gave the Capitals a 3-0 lead. Ovechkin’s two goals on the night sandwiched the Rangers’ lone goal in the third, on the power play by Chris Kreider.
