article imageNHL Scores: Washington tops Oilers 4-2

By Larry Seely     Oct 14, 2013 in Sports
Washington - Washington finally showed how they can play on Monday as the Capitals won just their second NHL game of the season, topping Edmonton 4-2 at the Verizon Center.
Both teams entered the game struggling, but the Oilers defense and goal tending once again let them down as they allowed all four scores in the first 34:00 of the game.
The Capitals were led by center Nicklas Backstrom with three assists and All-Star Alex Ovechkin added one goal and an assist to help the squad improve to 2-4 on the year. Goalie Braden Holtby played a solid game, allowing just two goals to the high scoring Edmonton squad and stopping 28 shots.
Edmonton started youngster Jason LaBarbera in net, but the move wasn't a success as he allowed all four goals on just 20 shot attempts. Boyd Gordan and Will Acton scored for the Oilers, but the loss now has the team at 1-4-1 and they have allowed 29 goals in those six contests.
