The Caps are riding the PDO train all the way to the trade deadline. With a 5-0 walloping of the Los Angeles Kings on Super Bowl Sunday, the Caps record yet another win on home ice and bring home another shutout for backup goalie Philipp Grubauer.
The game began, as all games do, with a goal by a bottom-six forward. This time it was Lars Eller up front to end Peter Budaj’s 147-minute shutout streak. Marcus Johansson added his first goal since January 19 before the first period was up. The second period saw Brett Connolly reach double-digit goals and TJ Oshie commit bottlecide.
In the third, Justin Williams summoned Enrique Iglesias with a quick goal off a faceoff.
Caps beat Kings 5-0! Shutout for Philipp Grubauer!
Just another five-goal blowout for Washington. Nothing is forbidden anymore.

The Horn Guy in a suite of the day
And that’s how we’ll close down the weekend. Once again, the Caps racked up a bunch of goals and earned a win. And despite back-to-back games, the Caps won each in convincing fashion.
Let’s go Falcons. I guess. I don’t know anything about football. Both of the QBs have really WASP-y names and the NFL is kinda gross. Let’s go fried food? I can get behind that.
