Dallas Stars at Washington Capitals NHL Matchup

The Washington Capitals and Dallas Stars each have found themselves involved in a trio of one-goal decisions to begin the season, with vastly different results.

The Capitals aim to rebound from their first misstep of the young campaign on Tuesday when they host the winless Stars, who are off to their worst three-game start since 1998 — when the franchise was located in Minnesota.

T.J. Oshie scored a goal for the second time in as many nights for Washington, which let a two-goal lead slip away in a 3-2 overtime loss to Carolina on Saturday.

“Always disappointing to be ahead in a game like that, and then see us let them back in it,” Capitals coach Todd Reirden said. “And then ultimately, we get the extra point. Five (points) out of six — if you were looking at it to start the year — would be something that would be above average from what we’re looking for. I think we did some good things in these three games, and some stuff to grow on.”
