by Monterey Pepper /

The Blackhawks fall to the Capitals 6-0 in their final preseason game Wednesday night at the United Center. 


The Washington Captials struck first with Liam O'Brien positioning himself in front of the crease and redirecting a shot from Colby Williams into the back of the net giving the Capitals the lead at 4:45 of the first period. 

The Capitals kept their momentum going scoring their second goal of the first period at 17:40 when John Carlson ripped a shot through traffic from the point to beat Crawford blocker side extending their lead, 2-0. 

Early in the second, Tyler Lewington was sent to the box for slashing giving the Blackhawks their third power play of the night. The Captials tallied a short-handed goal when Tom Wilson picked up the puck in the neutral zone on an odd-man rush and fired a wrister past Crawford's glove at 4:55. 

The fourth goal of the night was tipped in by Lars Eller at 11:33 of the second period. John Carlson took a shot from the point and found Eller's stick down low to give the Captials a 4-0 lead. 

The Capitals struck again at 11:55 in the third period when Jakub Vrana fires a wrister into the back of the net off of a back-handed feeder pass by Lars Eller putting them ahead 5-0.

Lars Eller netted his second goal of the night at 14:58 of the third period when he tapped in a rebound from T.J. Oshie to secure the Captial's 6-0 win.
