The Washington Capitals continue their preseason schedule tonight against the St. Louis Blues at Enterprise Center. Capitals center Lars Eller was drafted by the St. Louis Blues, 13th overall, in the 2007 NHL Draft and played in seven games for the Blues during the 2009-10 season. Eller, who is making his second appearance in the preseason, scored the game-winning goal in Game 5 of the 2018 Stanley Cup Final against the Vegas Golden Knights, giving the Caps their first Stanley Cup victory in franchise history. Eller recorded 18 points (7g, 11a) in 24 games during the playoffs and recorded four multi-point games, including three different three-point games. During the Eastern Conference quarterfinal against the Columbus Blue Jackets, Eller scored in double-overtime, marking the fifth double-overtime win in franchise history and the first since Nicklas Backstrom scored against the Boston Bruins on April 14, 2012. Additionally, Eller's goal came nine minutes into the second overtime, marking the second-latest game-winning goal in franchise history (Jason Chimera: 12:36 minutes into the second overtime, April 20, 2011 vs. New York Rangers). Eller also became the 25th player in franchise history to record an overtime goal.
