Matt Niskanen had two assists on Friday.
Niskanen did not have a good offensive season in his first year with Washington as he ended the season with four goals and 31 points after a 10 goal and 46 point effort with Pittsburgh in 2013-14. But the defenseman was certainly stellar offensively Friday to lead the Capital rearguards in points. Apr 18 - 10:27 AM
