Alex Ovechkin helped his team with a goal in a 4-1 victory over the Seattle Kraken. He has only 52 empty nets goals in his NHL career "I think we're all a little bit surprised he only has [52] in his career," Capitals forward Lars Eller said, as quoted by

"It felt like he's had more. Goal-scorers score goals in a lot of ways, and you've got to be at the right spot at the right time. So, happy for him." Charlie Lindgren had 25 saves. "It seems like three games in a row we've just played amazing hockey," Lindgren said.

"Honestly, I think it's been fun to play goal for this team all year long, but especially the last few games we've just been playing incredible. Can't get complacent, we've got to keep on going to work." Philipp Grubauer, on the other hand, had 34 saves.

"I think we had some great moments," Grubauer said. "I think we've got to get back to playing 60 minutes the way we can and making sure we are putting teams on their heels and play our way."


Johansson scored a great goal.

"It was a great play by Sonny," Johansson said. "I think when we got in the zone, both him and me were a little bit surprised that there was just one guy left, and [Milano] made a great play, so good to see one go in." Kraken coach Dave Hakstol praised Grubauer.

"He was solid," Kraken coach Dave Hakstol said. "He gave us a couple big saves. Their opportunities in the first and third came on a couple of flurries." Adam Larsson gave his review of the match. "I thought the start was there today," Larsson said.

"We had a really good first period and they were better the second. The third was kind of even and it's 2-1 game [with] three minutes left, four minutes left. The game was right there for us."
