Shaw got the scoring started at the 3:35-mark of the first period, and Viktor Stalberg followed that up with a goal of his own about four minutes later. Mike Knuble scored early in the second period for Washington to cut the margin to 2-1, but that was as close as the Capitals would be able to get.

Patrick Kane and Andrew Shaw pushed the lead back to 4-1, and Bryan Bickell put a cap on the evening with an empty-netter late in the third.
