Hoo boy we have a team here ladies and gents. The Caps got the upper hand on the Colorado Avalanche Tuesday, largely in part to the power play waking up from its early season slumber to provide the damage necessary to down Jared Bednar’s boys.
First was Ovi’s first of the season from his spot. Second was Timothy Leif Oshie from the slot. Both with a man advantage. Oshie then added another 5v5 off of a rebound from an Ovechkin shot that was sprung by a great play by Dmitry Orlov.
Caps beat Avalanche 3-0. The Caps are now 2-0-1 on the young season.

The Caps dominated the Avalanche. It’s almost machine-like how good this team is and yes, I can tell how good we are 3 games in. All 4 lines work, the defense looks comfortable and our backup just got a shutout.
