And when we had our chances, we capitalized. To keep a team like that to one goal is a good sign for our club.Andre Burakovsky scored and Braden Holtby stopped 28 shots for the Capitals, who have lost two of three.I really felt like against a dangerous transition team we really fueled their offense by the way we handled the puck, Capitals coach Todd Reirden said. Our puck management was poor and a lot of turnovers got us into trouble and kind of tilted the ice in their favor for really no reason.Edmonton got on the board first on a power play with 3:32 left in the opening period.

I just have to find the right places at the right time. It was nice to get one against my old team.McDavid added a late empty-netter.NOTES: It was the first of two meetings between the teams this season. Theyll play again on Nov. 5 in Washington.
