John Carlson scored his 100th career goal against the Kings Wednesday night and he did it in style.
After stealing the puck in the defensive zone, Carlson quickly advanced it into Capitals territory before sniping a wicked wrist shot past La goalie Jonathan Quick.

It was Carlson's 10th score of the year, which makes him well on pace to surpass his career-high of 15 he set back in 2017-18.
The 29-year-old is in the midst of a career year with 41 points through 30 games. Last year was his best season from a points perspective. He tallied 70 points (13 G, 57 A), so he's well on track to set a new career-mark by the end of this season.
