WASHINGTON -- Mike Richards was beginning to think he'd never score a goal again. When he finally did, he couldn't believe it really happened.
Richards' first goal of the season proved to be the game-winner in the Washington Capitals' 3-2 victory against the Arizona Coyotes at Verizon Center on Monday. It was his first goal in 13 months.
"I just figured with my luck, it'd be disallowed," Richards said. "I actually thought the goalie had it and the puck just popped out and it somehow ended up on my stick.
