Dylan Strome would win the game in the bottom of the fifth round of the shootout. It was a good extra point and a 7-6 win for the good guys.

But that shootout goal wasn't all that Strome did last night. He also had primary assists on Ovechkin's power play goal and Sonny Milano's second goal of the night. Strome also had a secondary on another Milano goal.

Strome's efforts in regulation extended his point streak to three games with a goal and four assists for five points. After recording 12 assists through his first 47 games of the season, Strome has now tallied 21 assists in his last 22 games.

27 of Strome's 33 assists this season are primaries and those primary assists lead the Caps. Later on Strome's shootout goal was his first career shootout goal that gave the Caps the win.

Coaches and teammates call Strome "Jordan". Here's why where Strome said something along the lines of "I want the ball. I want to shoot it."

Strome elaborated on his shootout experience to the media, "A lot less pressure when they haven't scored. It's not like if I missed it would've been game over so that (would've) becomes a little bit more stressful but I waited for him to kind of open up."
