The Capitals traveled to MoTown Tuesday night, where they still make cars just ones that are a little more Italian. It was a night of reunions and celebrations. But somebody forgot to invite the Caps. The fairy tale was not to be.
The Caps had a torrid pace through much of the first, Alex Ovechkin especially, but they couldn’t crack Petr Mzarek. In fact, the Wings actually scored the game’s opening goal, but Braden Holtby slipped the cookie out of the cookie jar with aplomb.
In the second, the Wings turned the nerd graphs upside down but the Capitals managed to keep the dam from overflowing.
That was until Andreas Athansiou (?) notched his first NHL tally on a fluke sharp angle shot. That was all. Ho hum. Wings blank Caps, 1-0.
Remember in The Office when Jim came back to Scranton and Pam said it felt like he still wasn't back? I'm Pam and 2015-16 Burakovsky is Jim
