Erik Karlsson was in DC to play hockey on Tuesday night. Unfortunately, it was for the away team, not the home team.
With about five minutes to go in the first, Matt Niskanen hopped out of the box and received a stretch pass. He then dropped it to TJ Oshie. Oshie found Evgeny Kuznetsov cutting to the net, who deposited the puck into the net for a 1-0 lead.
Early in the second, Tom “#TopLineTom” Wilson put the Caps up 2-0 with a snipe from the circle. Just before the period ended, number 92 in red struck again to put the good guys up 3-1.
Erik “not a Capital” Karlsson pulled the Sens within one in the third.
Caps win 3-2!
has anyone ever considered that Kuzy thinks he’s playing on NHL ’94 controls but really he’s set to skill stick and that’s why he passes up some shots?
