Vrana leads surging Capitals vs. Ducks

WASHINGTON -- Rookie forward Jakub Vrana is one of the young players the Washington Capitals are counting on to replace the goals they lost due to offseason departures.

After a bump in the road, he is doing that. The 21-year-old Vrana will be looking to score in his third straight game when the Capitals host the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday night.

In Thursday's 5-3 win over Boston, Vrana gave the Capitals a 1-0 lead when he split a pair of defenders, drove the net and scored. Vrana has 10 goals and four assists in 32 games and is one of six NHL rookies with 10 or more goals.
