Watch Caps’ Carlson score from center ice

Sometimes firing the puck is pretty much all you need to do is score. That was the case Sunday afternoon when Washington Capitals defenseman John Carlson dumped the puck into the Penguins zone and ended up beating his former teammate, Penguins goaltender Tomas Vokoun.

The silver lining for Vokoun is that Pittsburgh came back with three consecutive goals en route to a commanding 6-3 victory over Washington.

It was Vokoun’s first start against the Capitals since his stint with them last season and he now has a 3-1-0 record this season.
