The Great 8 gets his first goal of the post season, helping to ignite the Caps comeback victory.
Halfway through the second period the Capitals finally got on the scoreboard thanks to Karl Alzner.
The Capitals will be without Braden Holtby in goal during Game 2 against the New York Islanders. They will turn to a backup instead.
Barry Trotz said goaltender Braden Holtby is “definitely” feeling better, but left open the possibility that he could miss tonight’s Game 2 against the Islanders.
