The Capitals lost their first pair of back-to-back games this season falling 5-4 to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday night after losing to the Carolina Hurricanes on New Years Eve. TJ Oshie, Jason Chimera, Marcus Johansson, and Evgeny Kuznetsov scored in regulation, but despite another highlight-reel shootout goal from Oshie the Caps couldn’t convert their remaining attempts, losing only their tenth game this season.
