Capitals vs Devils on Thursday did not go well. Chris Gordon did his best to delight you while holding the RMNB reins, but nothing could salvage a very bad night for the home team.
Except maybe this.
By the way, the Capitals’ minus-18 even-strength shot differentials is their worst regular-season differential since… well since sometime in the Boudreau era as far as I can tell.
Did you know the Capitals have committed eight delay-of-game penalties in the last sixteen games? I think that’s a 29y53% increase from last year, but you can check my math.
Fast Fact: Alex Ovechkin fired 16 shots in the last 3 games without a goal. He usually scores twice in that span.
John Carlson. Just John Carlson.
Capitals human Jay Beagle won 88% of his 9 faceoffs. HEY WAIT THAT’S NOT SAD AT ALL. YEY JAY
Shucks. Thursday was the Caps’ second consecutive “wasted start.” Braden Holtby’s play should be good enough for a win 75% of the time.
Troy Brouwer got a misconduct at the end of regulation for being snippy. Can you blame him?
Brooks Laich is on twitter, but not the ice.
