The Capitals have been a chore to watch lately. They lost both games of a back-to-back over the weekend, managing to score just one goal in the efforts. Through 180 minutes (through the end of rego on Tuesday), the Caps had scored just two goals in three games. Boring.
Three minutes into overtime agains the Coyotes, Brooks Orpik and Eric Fehr combined to end our suffering. That two-game losing streak is over and, yay, three goals in three games. I can smile again.

Orpik takes a smart (and rare) slapshot from the point. Fehr, crashing the net, deposits the rebound. Bingo bango game over.
That’s Fehr’s second career overtime goal (I think). His other tally was some wizardry against the Bruins last season.
Another reminder for Barry Trotz: please don’t scratch this guy.
