Caps win and this team is so good.
The game kicked off with a Marcus Johannson goal off a beautiful Kuznetsov pass. Did the third line do anything amazing? Of course, Brett Connolly would pull through to tie up the game 2-2 going into the second period.
The second period happened quickly and a goal from TJ Oshie would put the Caps up 3-2. Burakovsky and Connolly scared us all with a couple of injury shake ups. Connolly would return, Burakovsky would not.
The third began with a sick backhander from Zetterberg, tying the game at 3-3. A rocket from John Carlson would put the Capitals up top 4-3. The Capitals would then go to their first power play of the game and TJ Oshie would score again because of course. Nick Backstrom would put an extra cherry on top for his 16th goal.
Caps beat Red Wings 6-3. Bailamos, baby.
The Capitals have scored first in 40 of their 55 games. That’s ridiculous.
