As Peter so eloquently put it in the recap, the Washington Capitals had their garbage game tonight. But here’s where I’m going to blow your mind: the Caps still almost came back. They outshot the Habs 36-34 and were inches from tying the score.
There were a few good moments late in the game. Dmitry Orlov’s sixth SCOARLOV of the year was a sick snipe. Andre Burakovsky’s goal, which brought the Caps to within one, was also a gem.
After taking a great pass from
Tom Wilson Stan Galiev, the Burracuda wrists a shot past Mike Condon’s five hole. I’d write more, but it’s just a beautiful shot which we need to enjoy from every angle.
To celebrate the goal, Burakovsky stole Evgeny Kuznetsov’s finger twirl-y celly thing, which we still have no idea what it means.
