Curtis Lazar tied the game at one, and then Erik Haula tallied just one minute later to give Boston a 2-1 lead. Tom Wilson would pull the Capitals even with a rebound goal later in the period.

Lars Eller would score the eventual game-winner when his off-angle shot would deflect off Haula and find the top corner of the net. To seal it, Alexander Ovechkin would score the empty netter, his 775th career goal.

The Bruins would lose defenseman Matt Grzelcyk in the first period after finishing a hit on Garnet Hathaway. The team announced that the injury was “upper-body.” Boston Bruins as already without David Pastrnak and Hampus Lindholm due to injury.
