The Washington Capitals escaped Columbus with a 3-2 victory thanks to a milestone goal from Nicklas Backstrom and the goaltending of Braden Holtby. The good guys avoided the final cannon shot, but unfortunately the entirety of the crowd in attendance was still deafened.
The Blue Jackets out-shot the Caps 39 to 25 and out-attempted the Caps at five-on-five 56 to 44.
