Capitals vs. Oilers Second Period Thread

The Caps and Oilers head to the second period in a late game from Edmonton

Perry Nelson-USA TODAY Sports

Evgeny Kuznetsov and Nicklas Backstrom scored around a Benoit Pouliot goal in the first period to give the Capitals a 2-1 lead in Philipp Grubauer's first start in goal this season.  That wouldn't end the fireworks, though.  The Oilers tied it, then the Caps scored in the last minute to take a 3-2 lead into the first intermission.  Now...the middle frame.
