Schmidt scores first career goal in Caps win

Nate Schmidt made his NHL debut this year thanks to an injury to veteran John Erskine, and on Saturday night scored his first career goal.  The rookie isn't known for his goal-scoring prowess, but after Karl Alzner got on the board earlier in the game, the veteran challenged the rookie -- and he responded.

Schmidt had been part of a rotating cast of characters on the defensive lines, but finally settled-in and netted his first career goal.
