Schmidt scores first NHL goal, gives Caps big lead

December 7, 2013

After a long stretch of impressive play since his call-up early in the year, defenseman Nate Schmidt finally has his first career NHL goal. Off a sneaky saucer pass from Martin Erat, Schmidt one-timed a slapper and beat Marek Mazanec far side. The Predators have since answered, but the home side leads 4-2.
