NHL: Washington Capitals at Ottawa Senators Marc DesRosiers-USA TODAY Sports

NHL Power Play and ESPN+ will host Thursday’s matchup between the Washington Capitals and the Dallas Stars. The game will start at 8:30 p.m. ET at American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.

Washington (4-3-0) has won four of its past five games and scored four or more goals in three games during that stretch. Future Hall of Famer Alex Ovechkin leads a balanced Capitals offense with six points (three goals, three assists). He continues to inch closer to history and currently sits at 783 career goals.

Dallas (4-2-1) has stumbled after a hot start, losing two in a row and three of its past four games. The Stars are still setting the pace in the Central Division and doing it with good goaltending. Jake Oettinger is 4-1 this season with a save percentage of .953 and a goals-against-average of 1.41, placing him among the top-5 netminders in both categories.
