Everyone, including us, made a big deal about Alex Semin coming back to DC. But the star of Tuesday’s match-up between the Washington Capitals and Carolina Hurricanes wasn’t Sasha, it was the man, the legend, Joe Corvo.
Just kidding. That guy sucks.
The Caps put up a ton of offense from unlikely guys, including Erskine and Carlson — and also Backstrom, from whom goals have been scarce of late. The Caps took over possession in the second period and didn’t relent, firing a season-high 40 shots. On the other end of the ice, Braden Holtby was perfect. Great Caps hockey.
Caps beat Canes 3-0.
Braden Holtby, you guys. As bad as his start to the season was, he’s been absolutely incredibly in the last few weeks. The kid is earning his paycheck and so much more. For a team that has had a hard time winning, having to score just one goal is manna from heaven. Does he get the start in Philly?
We need to bottle this game. Bottle it and drink it again tomorrow night. Flyers tomorrow night. Crash the net.
