The Washington Capitals eked out a win over the Detroit Red Wings, but it didn’t really seem like they ever truly wanted the two points. Philipp Grubauer was once again fantastic, earning a shutout victory on a night where the rest of his teammates didn’t bother to show up.
The Red Wings out-shot the Caps 39 to 26 and out-attempted them at five-on-five 53 to 34.
