The Washington Capitals nearly forgot how to score there. They had the puck in Tampa on Saturday night, but they just couldn’t muster much danger for Ben Bishop. For a while, it seemed as if Nikita Kucherov‘s goal would be enough to drop the Caps, but Nick Backstrom injected life with a power play marker in the third.
Overtime gave us nothing, and the Bolts won it in the shootout.
Meanwhile, Alex Ovechkin keeps getting minor penalties, John Carlson fired a team-high six shots on goal, and Braden Holtby is the best.
It wasn’t a good game, but shout-out to Derek to repping us in Tampa.
