Finallyyyyyyyyy the Caps have come back to DC! On the road since March 4, Washington returned home to host the Carolina Hurricanes, who sincerely think they’re a playoff team. That’s cute.
In a stunning turn of events–no seriously–the Caps scored the game’s first goal on the stick of Justin Williams, who tapped in Jason Chimera’s pass. Jordan Staal potted one in the second. Without a goal in the third period, the Caps earned a standings point and secured a playoff spot.
Alex Ovechkin won it in overtime! Caps beat Canes 2-1!
