October hockey isn't always pretty, and the Capitals' 4-3 overtime win over the New York Rangers on Wednesday certainly was no masterpiece. But in the wake of two straight setbacks, the two points gained with the win are welcome for Washington, even if a division rival picked up a point as well.

Shooting Star

Kuznetsov opts to shoot more on the Caps power play, to good effect

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / washingtoncaps.com

Caps center Evgeny Kuznetsov is known more for his passing prowess than for his goal-scoring ability, but he has shown over the years that he has plus shot and is more than capable at lighting the lamp himself. Through his first four-plus seasons in the league, Kuznetsov scored 80 goals, with 19 of them coming on the power play. He recorded a career high seven power-play goals for Washington last season, and all four of his early season goals in 2018-19 have come while the Caps enjoyed the man advantage.

Late Letdown Leads To Loss vs. Leafs - In the aftermath of Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs, the general consensus seemed to be that the Caps played a great second period and they let the game slip away in the first half of the third period.

Leafs Top Caps, 4-2

Caps let lead and game slip away late, falling 4-2 to the Maple Leafs in the opener of a three-game homestand

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / WashingtonCaps.com

Their start was strong, and the Capitals led for most of the first 40 minutes of Saturday's game against the Maple Leafs. But a dozen uneven minutes late in the second and early in the third ultimately proved to be their undoing in a 4-2 loss to the Leafs.
