The Washington Capitals‘ penalty kill took it from there.Kuznetsov scored his 18th and 19th goals of the season and the Capitals killed six of seven penalties en route to a 3-2 victory over the struggling Senators.”I thought the PK was the start.

The Senators’ power-play unit didn’t apply much pressure after Washington’s last two penalties.”A lot of around and around and around, and no pucks on net Patrick Kane Jersey ,” coach Guy Boucher lamented. ”No pucks on net, 100 percent sure of not scoring.”Kuznetsov put Washington up 1-0 late in the first period on a breakout only 12 seconds after the Capitals completed their first penalty kill, easily one-timing T.J. Oshie’s cross-ice feed past goaltender Mike Condon.Kuznetsov struck again moments before the second period expired, making it 3-1 when he beat Condon on a slick wraparound.Karlsson snuck in a shot from a tight angle behind Grubauer early in the third to cut Ottawa’s deficit to one.
