With an agonizingly slow win over the New Jersey Devils on Thursday night, the Capitals have now won all of their last 14 games on home ice in Verizon Center.
It’s a franchise record, y’all.
The @Capitals still haven’t lost at home in 2017.

The game, recapped by Pat Holden as punishment for something naughty he must have done, was not good. Shots were 24-15 for the Caps, giving Braden Holtby a season-low in shots faced as he earned his 8th shutout of the season.
Jakub Vrana scored the game-winner on a third period power play.
It was also Washington’s third 1-0 victory of the season and extends a winning streak that has lasted since new years eve. With the Caps on a home stand, they will have two more chances to extend the streak before hitting the road again.
The Capitals’ last loss at home came on December 29. To the New Jersey Devils.

Holtby in his last 20 games: 18-0-2. That's kinda good
