Vrana tallied a goal on three shots Tuesday in a 3-1 win over Pittsburgh.
Vrana picked the glove-side corner from the right faceoff circle to give the Capitals a 2-0 lead 11:31 into the second period. The goal, which proved to be the game-winner, was the second in as many games for Vrana. The 24-year-old has picked up four points in four contests since the calendar turned to February.
Vrana collected a goal on three shots and added a pair of hits Sunday in a 6-3 loss to Pittsburgh.
Vrana tied the game at 2-2 early in the second period when he located a loose puck in front and swept a backhander past Pittsburgh netminder Tristan Jarry. It snapped a six-game goal drought for Vrana, who missed Washington's previous game last Sunday due to the NHL's COVID-19 protocols. A 20-goal scorer each of the last two seasons, Vrana should receive a lift from the return of center Evgeny Kuznetsov (COVID-19 protocol), who was back in the lineup for the first time since Jan. 19.
Vrana has been removed from the NHL's COVID-19 protocols list, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic reports.
Vrana missed Sunday's loss to the Flyers after being added to the protocols list Saturday, but he'll be eligible to return for the Capitals' next contest, which is currently scheduled for Sunday versus Pittsburgh.
Vrana was placed in the NHL's COVID-19 protocol Saturday, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.
Vrana joins teammates Evgeny Kuznetsov and Ilya Samsonov in virus protocol. He can be safely ruled out for Sunday's game against the Flyers, and there's no clear timeline for his return to action. The 24-year-old has impressed through the first 11 games, recording three goals and five assists.
Vrana was given a maintenance day and did not attend Saturday's practice, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.
Vrana's absence from practice does not appear to threaten his availability for Sunday's matinee against the Flyers but check for further confirmation prior to puck drop. The Czech winger is running a little cold of late with just two helpers and eight shots in his last five games.
Vrana had two assists with three shots Monday in a 5-3 loss to the Bruins.
Vrana set up goals by Daniel Sprong and John Carlson, the latter with the man advantage, to stake the Capitals to a 3-0 lead. It was the second multi-point showing of the season for the 24-year-old, who has three goals and five assists with a plus-6 rating after 10 games. Vrana produced 49 goals over his previous two seasons and is worth a spot on fantasy rosters, especially once the Capitals are back to full strength.
Vrana skated alongside Michael Sgarbossa and Daniel Sprong on the fourth line during Monday's morning skate, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.
After a hot start, Vrana has now gone three games without a point, managing just four shots in that span. The demotion is likely temporary, but is more than enough justification for fantasy managers to fade the 24-year-old until he can rekindle his scoring touch and log regular minutes in the top six.
Vrana registered a power-play assist while logging 18:50 of ice time during Sunday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Sabres.
The helper gives Vrana four points during a three-game streak. The 24-year-old has benefitted from a larger workload with Alex Ovechkin (COVID-19 protocols) out of the lineup -- averaging 18:47 of ice time in the last two games. The 13th overall pick from the 2014 NHL Entry Draft remains a worthwhile fantasy asset in plenty of formats.
Vrana scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 4-3 shootout win over the Sabres.
With Alex Ovechkin and Evgeny Kuznetsov, among others, unavailable due to COVID-19 protocols, the Caps needed someone else to lead the offense and Vrana came through, setting up Nic Dowd early in the second period for the team's second goal before scoring the tying tally himself later in the frame. Vrana has found the scoresheet in every game but one to begin the season, racking up three goals and five points through five games.
Vrana tallied the game-winning goal and added five shots during Thursday's 6-4 win over the Sabres.
Vrana stemmed a Sabres surge from the end of the second period into the beginning of the third with the marker. The Czech winger should be locked in as a top-six forward on a high octane offense as he attempts to break the 30-goal barrier for the first time in his young career.
Vrana tallied an assist and three shots during Saturday's 5-2 win over the Penguins.
Vrana's scant 11:24 of ice time could be attributed to Washington's constant presence in the penalty box, but the Czech winger has only posted three goals in his last 19 outings. Keep rolling the 24-year-old out there, as he should shake the slump before long.
Vrana tallied a goal and four shots during Tuesday's 4-3 shootout win over the Jets.
Vrana showcased his blazing speed on an end-to-end rush in the first period to give the Captials a 2-0 lead. The 23-year-old winger has eclipsed the 25-goal mark for the first time in his young career and with a prominent even strength and power-play role on one of the league's best offenses, the sky is the limit for the speedy Czech.
Vrana had a pair of assists and one shot on goal in Monday's 3-2 loss to Vegas.
Vrana was in on both T.J. Oshie goals midway through the third period, helping to turn a 3-0 Vegas lead into a one-goal contest. Vrana's goal-scoring has dried up in recent weeks -- he's gone nine games without one -- but he has still managed to chip in with seven helpers in that stretch. Overall, the 23-year-old has 23 goals and a career-high 49 points through 59 games.
Vrana recorded an assist and three shots on net across 13:20 of ice time in Sunday's 4-3 loss to Pittsburgh.
Vrana racked up 13 points across 11 games in January, and he's not slowing down now that the calendar flipped. The 23-year-old has compiled 23 goals and 45 points through 53 games, and he'll easily hit career highs in both categories.
Vrana finished Monday's 4-2 win over Montreal with a goal and an assist, extending his point streak to nine games.
With 42 points through 50 games, Vrana only needs six more points the rest of the season to set a new career high. The 23-year-old has been absolutely on fire since the beginning of January, racking up 11 points in nine contests to begin the calendar year.
Vrana netted a goal on two shots in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Flyers.
Vrana has picked up four goals and an assist during his four-game point streak.

The 23-year-old has added 127 shots on goal, a plus-10 rating and 16 PIM to round out his stat line.
Vrana scored two goals in Sunday's 5-4 win over the Sharks.
Vrana is up to 18 goals this season and needs only seven more to set a new career high.

A favorable matchup with Ottawa awaits Vrana and the Capitals on Tuesday.
Vrana tallied a goal on four shots in Friday's 4-3 win over the Hurricanes.
Vrana put up 12 goals through 28 games to open the season, but he's now scored just four times in his last 14 outings, which included a 10-game goal drought. It's still been a solid year on the whole for the 23-year-old, who has 32 points, 119 shots on goal and a plus-7 rating in 2019-20. His tally Friday also counted as the game-winner, his fourth of the campaign.
Vrana tallied an assist despite logging just 9:35 of ice time during Monday's 7-3 loss to the Bruins.
The low ice time notwithstanding, Vrana has posted three goals and eight points over his last 10 games. With 31 points in 38 games on the season, the 23-year-old winger is a solid fantasy asset as he continues to have a breakout campaign.
Vrana scored a goal and added a power-play assist in Friday's 3-2 win over the Ducks.
Vrana helped out on Evgeny Kuznetsov's goal in the second period. The Ducks rallied to tie the game, but Vrana deposited his 15th of the year at 1:37 of the third period to produce the eventual final score. All of his goals have come at even strength this season, but the Czech winger has a career-high six power-play points as well. He's posted six goals and four helpers in his last nine contests, raising his season total to 27 points in 31 games.
