The Caps looked so freaking ready for the playoffs during Wednesday’s blowout win over the Boston Bruins.
John Carlson scored in the first, taking a cross-ice pass from Nick Backstrom and shooting high glove. Backstrom also pinched in on the next goal, a cannon by Matt Niskanen. In the second period, Marcus Johansson scored his 20th of the season off a wonderful pass by Evgeny Kuznetsov.
Braden Holtby looked a god among insects in the third period.
Caps beat Bruins 3-0. Holtby’s league-leading 9th shutout of the season.
