The Washington Capitals closed out their two-game homestand with a 4-1 win over the Nashville Predators on Friday, coming out with four points total since returning home from California. Evgeny Kuznetsov showed off more of his wizardry by setting up Daniel Winnik for his first goal as a Capitals, TJ Oshie‘s sneaky pop up, and Andre Burakovsky‘s top-shelf icing on the cake. The team finally started looking like the team we’d known before the blizzard in January.
With the Preds in town, it’s only another reminder of what could have been with Filip Forsberg. He scored Nashville’s lone goal to open the scoring of the game, but could you imagine having him in the Caps lineup now? The team the Capitals have built since that horrific trade is already on the road to great things, but I will still be muttering bitterly about that trade when I’m 80.
See the game from an attending fan’s perspective with my collection from the night:
