  Evgeny Kuznetsov returns to the lineup; Michal Kempny remains out Stephenson will slot in as the team's fourth-line center over Nic Dowd. “Yeah I’m excited for sure," Kuznetsov said. “It’s been quite a hard summer for me, and it is not easy to watch the games from upstairs or on the TV. You know, as a hockey player when you play a lot of games, you probably don’t realize how cool it is to actually go through warm-up, go through all the process, play the hockey game. When you miss a couple games, you start to realize how much easier, cooler to play the hockey than be in the workout area.

They're a good hockey team, probably the best we've played this year. That was a good measuring-stick team.''

Wilson pushed Washington's lead to 4-2 on a feed from Lars Eller to beat Talbot under his left pad with 7:26 left in the third period. Carlson's empty-netter with 1:45 remaining maid it a three-goal game before Rieder capped the scoring with 16 seconds to go.
