The 2016-17 Arizona Coyotes are one of the worst teams in the NHL in the post lockout era and the 2016-17 Washington Capitals are one of the best. The two teams showed us that discrepancy very clearly, maybe not on the scoreboard for much of the game, but definitely everywhere else.
Alex Ovechkin got the home team on the board first, firing home a wrist shot from the left slot on the power play.
Second period? 5,000 Capitals shot attempts and an Alex Goligoski missed empty net. Through 40 minutes at 1-0.
Peter Holland tied the game at 1 after Anthony Duclair was stopped on a breakaway by Braden Holtby. Daniel Winnik and Justin Williams then scored in quick succession to give the Caps back their lead. Winnik added another with an empty net strike.
Caps beat Coyotes 4-1!
