Happy Halloween, humans! If you stayed up to watch the Caps beat the Calgary Flames, you certainly weren’t tricked. You could even say it was a treat–
Oh gosh. This is terrible writing. I’m just rusty. I promise I’ll get better. Let’s talk scoring.
Starting us off was Brett Connolly, the new guy, aided by Jay Beagle and Zach Sanford. Then Marcus Johansson scored his third goal of the weekend (!!!) on the power play, set up by Alex Ovechkin. Mikael Backlund cut the lead in half with a controversial goal for the Flames.
All that happened in the first period. The next 39 and a half minutes went by without much furor, unless you consider Craig Anderson’s emotional shutout over the Oilers and the Cubs fending off Cleveland. Then Marcus Johansson got his second of the night with an empty netter to seal the deal.
Caps beat Flames 3-1!
First, let’s set the mood.
Okay, great. Mood is set.

Joe B suit of the late late night
Solid win by Washington. The only shot that beat ’em was tainted, if you ask me. This is shaping up to be a respectable road trip, and there’s one more game to go with the Jets on Tuesday.
P.S. Hey, good to see you guys. Sorry I’ve been so scarce. You all look great. Let’s do this again soon.
