The Capitals ran their season-high losing streak to six with a 2-0 loss at the hands of the Ottawa Senators. A game with no Alex Ovechkin and a noticable lack of fans due to weather was just about as dull as possible. On to the reCap:
In what was one of their worst showings of the season, the Capitals fell 5-1 in Columbus on Friday night. Not really anything good to say about this one. On to the reCap:
The Capitals continue to struggle late in games as they fell to the Pittsburgh Penguin 4-3 on Wednesday night. The Capitals led three different times, but allowed the Penguins to tie it up every time before giving up the game winner inside of two minutes. On to the reCap:
The Washington Capitals fell to the San Jose Sharks in a shootout 2-1 on Tuesday. In what was yet another well-played game by the Capitals, they were stopped by another great goaltender. At some point, you have to stop giving the opposing goaltenders all the credit. On to the reCap:
The Washington Capitals made it two wins in two nights as they beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 3-2. It was once again a late goal, this time from Joel Ward, that sent them home with a win. On to the reCap:
The Washington Capitals finally got off their losing streak, beating the Tampa Bay Lighting (and bad ice) by a score of 4-3. It looked like they had yet again blown a late lead, only to see a last-minute Eric Fehr deflection seal it for good. On to the reCap:
The Washington Capitals held the Minnesota Wild to only 11 shots, but still fell by a score of 5-3. There's not really anything else to be said, but I'll give it a shot. On to the reCap:
The Washington Capitals dropped their third straight home game against the Carolina Hurricanes by a score of 4-3. In what has become the norm for these games, Jeff Skinner was the best player on the ice, finishing off his hat trick with the game winner in overtime. On to the reCap:
The Washington Capitals suffered a rough SO loss to the Sabres tonight by the score of 2-1. It was a game that saw the Caps tie a season-high in shots (50), but they just could not get them past Ryan Miller. Not in the regulation; not in overtime; not in the shootout. On to the reCap:
The Capitals run came to an end tonight, with a 5-2 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers. What was a back-and-forth game, took a huge turn when Tom Wilson was ejected for charging Brayden Schenn. On to the ReCap:
The Washington Capitals were unable to see their winning streak continue as they lost 3-2 in the shootout at the hands of the Florida Panthers. The Capitals were lucky to gain a point in the game as they found themselves outshot by a wide margin (40-23). On to the reCap:
The Washington Capitals overcame three early goals to down the Tampa Bay by a score of 6-5 in the shootout. The Capitals were down 3-0 early before coming back to tie it late in the seocond. The Lightning would regain the lead in the third only to see Alexander Ovechkin score his fourth of the night to tie it with 33 seconds remaining. This is a win to remember for sure. On to the reCap:
The Capitals had a rough start to their extended homesteand, falling to the Carolina Hurricanes 4-1. A decent start was undone by an absolutely abysmal second period, usually the Caps' best period. On to the reCap:
The Washington Capitals overcame a late goal to best the Islanders 3-2 in overtime tonight. After Thomas Vanek scored with less than two minutes to go, the Capitals scored a late shorthanded goal and took both points thanks to Alexander Ovechkin's 14th overtime goal. The win moves the Capitals into clear second place in the Metropolitan division. On to the reCap.
The Capitals completed yet another third-period comeback en route to a 4-3 shootout victory over the Detroit Red Wings. The Capitals entered the third period trailing 3-1, but goals from Ovechkin and Latta were enough to force overtime and, eventually, a shootout. The win keeps Washington within a point of Pittsburgh, who beat Nashville earlier in the night. On to the reCap.
The Washington Capitals ended their brief Western road trip with a 4-1 loss at the hands of the Colorado Avalanche. It was the second and final time the two teams have met this season, with Colorado taking both games by a combined score of 9-2. This game was rough to watch, and that is about more than the scoreline. On to the reCap:
The Washington Capitals squandered a third period two-goal lead en route to a 4-3 shootout loss to the Phoenix Coyotes. The loss snapped the Capitals four-game winning streak and was the first shootout loss under Adam Oates. The Caps also failed to move within two points of division-leadin Pittsburgh, who fell to St. Louis earlier in the night. On to the reCap:
The Washington Capitals extended their win streak to season-high four games with a 3-2 shootout victory over the visiting Minnesota Wild. The Caps had to erase a 2-1 Wild lead late in the third with a Marcus Johansson goal. The Capitals also had a big penalty kill in overtime en route to the skills competition. The win moved the Caps to 9-7-0 on the season. On to the reCap:
The Washington Capitals turned in one of their best performances of the season tonight en route to a 7-0 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers. What started sloppy, became high scoring, and eventually became a circus. It was the first shutout of the season for the Caps as well as their largest offensive outburst. On to the reCap.
The Capitals finished off their West Coast road trip tonight with a 3-2 loss at the hands of the Vanouver Canucks. It was one of those games that you could, in theory, chalk up the Caps simply being tired from the long swing, but only if you hadn't watched the Caps this season. On to the reCap:
The Capitals were unable to build on the last win as they fell to the New York Rangers by a score of 2-0. The loss drops them to 2-5-0 early in the season. Not a lot of good in this game, so on to the reCap:
The Washington Capitals managed to get back in the win column thanks to a 4-2 victory over the visiting Edmonton Oilers. Prior to tonight, the Capitals had lost three straight and had looked pretty mundane in the process. It also marked the first regulation win for the Capitals this season. On to the reCap:
The slow start to the Capitals season continued tonight with a 5-1 loss to the Colorado Avalanche. As has been the case in the early season, they had some good chances, but just could not find a way to take advantage of them. The loss puts the Caps at 1-4-0 on the season and their lone win was not exactly noteworthy. On to the reCap.
The Washington Capitals fell to 1-3-0 to start that season after a 3-2 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes. It was the Capitals first loss at home this season and first loss in the new Metropolitan Division. The Capitals got out to an early lead behind a Jason Chimera goal, but were unable to keep the Hurricanes from tying it up and taking the lead in the third period. On to the ReCap.
