Capitals stay positive, get much-needed win against Oilers
Instead of dwelling on the negative, Oates focused on what was good about the club’s recent play.
One day after Oates‘ positive power talk during practice, the Capitals scored three goals in less than four minutes of the second period en route to a 4-2 win over the Edmonton Oilers on Monday night.
“We feel confidence here. Of course we were kind of upset about the beginning of the year,” Ovechkin said. “We win only one game.”
“Finally, we get the lead and we play with the lead like most of the game,” Ovechkin said.
With the score tied at 1, Ward took advantage of a power play and scored his first goal of the season at 10:06.
“I thought everything was going fine until we brought a puck back into our zone, and that basically started a few dominos to fall,” Edmonton coach Dallas Eakins said.
The Oilers (1-4-1) have four games left on their season-high six-game road trip.
“It goes back to the adage of every moment in the game is important. For three minutes we went backward, and it cost us the game,” Eakins said.
