The Caps started slow with six minutes of squandered power play time but got tallies from Troy Brouwer, Jack Hillen, and Alex Ovechkin shortly after. Ribeiro registered his 600th NHL point with a primary assist and Ovechkin now leads Steven Stamkos for the League lead in goals, 3-0 good guys.
The second period is straight ahead.
We send our best wishes to Nate Thompson after that scary scene.
