The Washington Capitals were outplayed by the Minnesota Wild on Thursday night. Despite Troy Brouwer’s protestations otherwise, the Caps were steadily outshot — attempted or on goal — throughout the game. Nevertheless, winning hockey games always requires some luck, and the Caps had it late against the Wild.
“Sometimes you gotta get goals like that,” head coach Adam Oates told reporters. “It took a lot of work and we fought through a lot of frustration.”
