Whoa, relax Andre. It’s just an NHL goal.
We needed this. The Capitals had a rough week, but they capped it off with a steady victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Sunday night.
Alex Ovechkin was the guy. He scored on his very first shift, using the space allowed to him by a gracious Leafs defense to shoot from the slot. He scored again in the second, snatching Brooks Orpik’s rebound to put the Caps up two.
Marcus Johansson sidled up to the scoreboard with a backdoor tap-in in the third period. Joel Ward launched an ICBM from the Caps’ side of the ice to score an empty netter with five minutes left.
Caps beat Leafs 4-0. Slump busted. Holtby perfect.
@russianmachine No way around it now, Tom Wilson most definitely a Krogan

Joe B’s white-and-gold suit of the night
It’s nights like this that remind me of all Alex Ovechkin’s many character assassins. Kornheiser, MacLean, Milbury and the rest– I hope they appreciate that Ovi has joined the company of the very best scorers in this league’s history in yet another category– with seven 40-goal seasons.
Again: we needed that. Thank you, Maple Leafs.
