The Capitals have now won ten games in a row against the Boston Bruins. Dating back to the late 80s, the Caps just have the Bs number. Here’s the story of the tenth victory in a row, which featured Tom Wilson in starring role, just to tick off everyone up in Boston.
The scoring started, oddly enough, off Tom Wilson’s stick – a no-angle shot after an o-zone faceoff. Alex Ovechkin notched his first goal since October 20 before the first period was up, giving the Caps a lovely 2-0 lead going into intermission.
David Pastrnak got past the Caps defense to get the Bs on the board early in the second, but Tom Wilson, oddly enough, scored again in the second period with a deflection on Brooks Orpik’s shot to give the Caps a cozy 3-1 lead heading into the third.
The Caps killed seven minutes of penalties in the third period before David Pastrnak scored short-side to make it a one-goal game.
Caps win 3-2!

Another win for the Caps that was perhaps not wholly deserved. This is certainly shaping up to be an interesting season. I’ll be making my snapshot debut tomorrow around lunchtime. Let’s talk about it more then.
