After whipping the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday, the Washington Capitals have now won ten straight games at home. That’s nice. Lemme tell you about it.
So Daniel Sedin scored first, assisted by Henrik Sedin – who I am told is a completely different Sedin. John Carlson responded with a slightly dubious goal that I’ll talk about below, and then Lars Eller piled on with a nifty solo scoring effort. The Caps dominated the second period but had just one Kuznetsov marker to show for it.
Caps beat Canucks 3-1.

On November 30, the Caps lost 5-2 to the Los Angeles Kings. Since then, Capital One Arena has seen nothing but Ws. Even if everything outside the scoreboard is screaming “oh god oh god this team is a paper tiger and this is not sustainable and the playoffs are gonna burnnnnnnn” – aside from all that, this is kind of a nifty fun time right now.
