All these smiling faces.
With less than a week to go, the Capitals got an important win on the road from the Detroit Red Wings– drawing ever closer to making their playoff fate a lock.
The Caps got an early lead off Evgeny Kuznetsov’s stick (and a sick bounce). Mike Green’s Easton made it 2-0 in the second period, but Darren Helm got a power-play goal after a great pass from Pavel Datsyuk. The Caps held off a brilliant empty-net attack late to earn two crucial standings points in #rego.
Caps beat Red Wings 2-1.
Joe B suit of the night
Good win for the final road game of the year. All that’s left is Wednesday night against the bubblelicious Bruins and Saturday against the roost-ruling Rangers. Then, the real game begins.
