VIDEO: Capitals Defeat Defending-Champion Blues in Overtime to Capture Season-Opening Road Win

The St. Louis Blues hoisted their championship banner before their opening night matchup with the Washington Capitals, but that's about all the glory they experienced once the game began. The Caps and Blues went to overtime tied at 2-2, but Washington pulled away with a late goal in the extra period to go home with the win.

Jakub Vrana called game with that slick shot past Blues goalie Jordan Binnington. Alex Ovechkin and Dmitry Orlov each put one in the back of the net as well to help lead the Caps to victory.
