One day before the Caps go to Carolina to play the Hurricanes, the Hurricanes came to DC to play the Caps. Justin Williams was back in town to visit his old friends.
The first period ended as it began, with no score.
A little over halfway through the second, John Carlson made an ill-advised pass that Jordan Staal turned into a shorthanded goal to put the Canes up 1-0. But later in the period Lars Eller tied the game at one.
Victor Rask put the Canes up 2-1 with 9:06 left in the game. Sebastian Aho iced it with an empty net goal.
Caps lose 3-1.
