The Caps headed down to Sunrise on Thursday with their dads in attendance. Washington showed they learned well from their mentors by doing what old people normally do in Florida: nothing.
The game got off to a weird not-start, with puck drop being delayed nearly 20 minutes due to a lack of EMS folks in the area. When it finally got going, ya boy Jaromir Jagr put the Panthers on the board in the opening minute with a glorious deflection past Philipp Grubauer.
While the Caps offense lay dormant, Washington kept gifting Florida power play. On their fourth man advantage in under 30 minutes, the Panthers converted as Brandon Pirri unleashed a ballistic slap shot from the near circle.
Aaron Ekblad, Alex Ovechkin, and Logan Shaw added tallies in the third, but everyone had stopped caring at that point. Cats beat Caps 4-1.

It’s just one game. Forget about it.
