The Washington Capitals and the Vancouver Canucks last met on October 28th in Vancouver. The Canucks pulled out the win over the Capitals with a 3-2 victory. The Capitals managed to make this a closely contested contest, but Vancouver would ultimately have the last laugh. Washington's leading scorer Alexander Ovechkin was held to only three shots on goal and scored zero points.
The Canucks out-shot the Capitals 41-19 during the game and it is amazing that they only finished the game winning by one goal. The win for Vancouver was their fourth in a row and they would gain two points in the division standings to remain in second place.

Currently the Vancouver Canucks are third to last in their division and only have sixty eight points compared to ninety three for division leader Anaheim. The Capitals are hanging in the middle of the pack in their division with seventy points. Their division leader is Pittsburgh with ninety points.
