Their most recent encounter was held on March 8th, 2022, and finished in a tight 5-4 Washington Capitals victory. Alex Ovechkin was the main reason for the Capitals’ triumph back then. He spent 17:10 on the ice, earning 2 points by scoring two goals. For the Flames, Elias Lindholm earned 2 points on the night. He was on the ice until 22:23, scoring two goals. The Capitals’ triumph may also be attributed to the team’s netminder. Vitek Vanecek managed to stop 31 of the 35 shots, which was enough to seal the victory. His counterpart, Dan Vladar, was challenged with 26 attempts towards his goal, and four of those made it through to the back of his net.
