Washington Capitals prospect Madison Bowey scored a goal and tallied an assist in the Kelowna Rockets’ game one 5-4 Western Conference finals win over a team with another Caps’ draft pick, Garrett Haar‘s Portland Winterhawks.

Bowey is #4 in white.

The Winterhawks led 3-0 at one point in the first period, but the Rockets came up with two goals before the intermission. The second goal was huge, a shorthanded marker with 27 seconds to go scored by Bowey himself.

In the third period, with the score 4-3 Portland, Bowey’s shot from the point got deflected by teammate Justin Kirkland for the the game-tying goal. Jesse Lees scored the game-winner soon afterwards.

After the game, Bowey spoke to the media about the win.

“I think it’s huge for us,” Bowey said. “Whenever you can get the first game of a series, it’s big for your team and it gives us a lot of momentum going into the next one. I think it was huge for us to come back there. We [overcame] a lot of adversity and we’re definitely happy about that.”

Game two is tonight at 7pm.

    It is probably two or three years away, but excited to see Bowey play in Washington. His game and decision making might not be as advanced as Seth Jones, but his skill set isn’t far off, especially the skating. Carrick, Orlov, Carlson and him will give us a very mobile backline in the future.
