Galiev was held pointless in the game but did record one shot and a hit in 9:56 of ice time. He played 18 seconds on the power play. The former Sea Dogs forward, called up this week from the AHL's Hershey Bears, was part of the Capitals’ fourth line with Michael Latta and Andre Burakovsky.
Before the game, Galiev was given the typical rookie treatment by the Caps.
It’s unclear how long Galiev will remain in Washington. The Capitals play their final game of the regular season on Saturday afternoon at home against the New York Rangers.
