Glencross scored his first NHL playoff goal in Friday's Game 5 loss to the Rangers.

It was also the first point of the 2015 playoffs for Glencross, who logged just 10:12 of ice time in the loss. While he's a former 26-goal-scorer, the 32-year-old has taken on a reduced role with Washington and is currently skating on the fourth line. He knows how to put the puck in the net, but given the fact he's seeing so few minutes, don't expect impressive totals.

Glencross netted an assist in Washington's 4-2 win over Carolina on Tuesday.

Acquired from the Calgary at the trade deadline to provide more secondary scoring, Glencross has struggled in his first few weeks as a Capital, and now finds himself on the fourth line with Michael Latta and Tom Wilson. The assist gives him 35 points on the season, but is his only point in the last six games. With reduced ice time, the pending unrestricted free agent will need to shift into a higher gear if he is to provide the Capitals the meaningful support they need, and the long-term contract he desires at the season's end.
