It seems the Washington Capitals didn’t have anything left in the tank after that trip through California. Since then, it’s been a spirally flush down a soiled toilet. This time, someone remembered to flush. The Dallas Stars didn’t even have to be good because the Caps were freaking awful.
Tyler Seguin scored after a turnover. Ray Whitney scored after a turnover. Dustin Jeffrey scored after a defensive clustereff and then again in the third. Garbutt got a shorty.
It was never close. Ever.
Stars beat Caps 5-0. Shutout. Dagger. Coffin. Fat lady.
We’ll have more later, but heads should roll. These Caps look way way worse than the team that supposedly gave up on Boudreau.
I don’t have much to say here except you deserve better. You invest time and money and feels into this team, and they let you down hard.
As of right now, the Washington Capitals show no intent to make any changes.

An earlier version of this story contained a phrase I did not know was offensive. It has since been removed. Thanks to Ryan for the heads up.
