Canucks outlast Capitals in seven-round shootout

  • Bo Horvat scored the only goal in a seven-round shootout to give the Vancouver Canucks a 2-1 win against the Washington Capitals at Capital One Arena on Saturday.
  • Washington’s Lars Eller appeared to score to start the fifth round, but a video review showed his shot hit the post and crossbar without going over the goal line. Two rounds later, Horvat beat Braden Holtby with a wrist shot for the win.
  • Elias Pettersson scored in regulation for Vancouver (12-8-4), which has won two in a row and ended a four-game losing streak against Washington. Jacob Markstrom made 32 saves through overtime and did not allow a goal in seven rounds of the shootout.

“It’s one of those positions you want to be in,” Horvat said of having a chance to win the shootout. “You want to be there in the big moments. [Markstrom] was phenomenal in the shootout, and I wanted to be the one to win it for him. So, I was happy I got to go and happy it went in.”

  • Jakub Vrana scored and Holtby finished with 32 saves for the Capitals (16-4-5), who are 0-1-1 in their past two games.

“Braden was outstanding I thought all game,” Capitals coach Todd Reirden said. “Gives us a chance and right through the shootout gave us a chance. Tough to only get one point, but we’ll take it and move on.”

  • Washington defenseman John Carlson’s point streak ended at eight games.
  • The Canucks were 1-for-5 on the power play and were unable to score on the man-advantage during overtime. The Capitals were 0-for-3.

“It’s not easy, especially against that power play. They’re pretty lethal,” Horvat said. “They’ve got a lot of firepower over there, so for our PK to step up like they did tonight, and our best [penalty killer] has to be our goalie and he was tonight.”
