Video: Caps net three goals on consecutive shots

Oct 15, 2013, 9:32 AM EDT

The Edmonton Oilers came out with a strong effort in the first half of Monday’s game against the Washington Capitals and the contest was consequently tied at 1 through 30 minutes. Then everything fell apart for the Oilers.

Washington managed to find the back of the net in three straight shots on goal over the span of just under four minutes. You can view that feat below:

For Joel Ward and Troy Brouwer, it was their first goals of the season. Alex Ovechkin netted his sixth goal in as many games.

“I thought everything was going fine until we brought a puck into our zone — and that started a few dominoes to fall. That’s all it took,” Oilers coach Dallas Eakins told the Edmonton Journal.

“We get what we deserve on that. I thought for the other minutes, we played well enough to be even or better but the game is not 57 minutes long.”

The Oilers dropped to 1-4-1 and have the worst record in the Western Conference.

    cant wait for tonight’s game, hoping the pens blow it wide open as well. i missed not watching games against the western conference last year. the oilers have given up at least 4 goals every game, just plain bad hockey they’re playing right now

      Crosby and Malkin should have a lot of fun on powerplays if the Oilers let the Penguins set up on power plays like they let the Capitals.

      Maybe the Oilers will bounce back on the Pens the way Florida did. That would be awesome.

    Yeah, you probably shouldn’t let Backstrom and Grabovski play tic-tac-toe passing drills during power plays……..

    Not that impressed. It wasn’t 3 consecutive shots, as they missed the net on at least one. Had it been 3 consecutive, that’d be impressive.

      Three consecutive shots on goal.

    I was at the game next to the Oilers bench. If anyone saw a guy wearing an eagle head, that was me.
