Capitals Vs. Oilers: Caps Commit Five Penalties, Give Up Only One Goal, Trail Oilers 2-1

The Washington Capitals were incredibly undisciplined in the second period as they committed five minor penalties. Luckily for the Caps, the Oilers only struck once as Edmonton leads Washington 2-1 after two periods.

With Troy Brouwer in the penalty box for hooking, Jordan Eberle gave the Oilers the lead at 12:44. Tomas Vokoun made the initial save on Corey Potter's slap shot, but the rebound came right to Eberle, who had a wide open net to score his second goal of the season.

The Oilers are 2-of-8 on the power play, making it just the second time this season that the Caps have allowed more than one power play goal in a game. It's also the most power play opportunities that Washington has allowed since November 20, 2010 against the Philadelphia Flyers (nine).

Shots were 8-7 in favor of Edmonton in the second period, but are 16-13 in favor of Washington for the game.
