Bruins Vs. Capitals: Marcus Johansson's First Career Goal Cuts Bruins' Lead in Half

The Capitals' first goal was also Marcus Johansson's.

The young Swede scored his first career goal after the Capitals failed to score on an extended power play opportunity. After some good forechecking in the offensive zone, Matt Hendricks got to the puck to Jason Chimera, who in turn sent it to Johansson for a point blank one-timer to cut the Bruins' lead to 2-1 at 7:42 of the second period.
