WASHINGTON, DC - Jujhar Khaira scored in his return to the lineup, and for the third time on their road trip the Oilers went beyond regulation. This time, however, the orange and blue would fall to the Washington Capitals 2-1 in a shootout.
Laurent Brossoit, who got the start between the pipes for the Oilers, stopped 18 shots in regulation and overtime, and two out of the three Caps players in the shootout.

"You never want to go to the shootout, you want to win as quickly as possible," said Brossoit. "But having said that, it's a good opportunity to try to steal a win. It's unfortunate I couldn't do that."
