The famed Bell Centre is always a fantastic venue for a hockey game and the Washington Capitals met the Montreal Canadiens there tonight in an Eastern Conference battle. The Caps offense took advantage of a very banged up, very bad Habs team.
Alex Galchenyuk capitalized on a defensive zone giveaway to open the scoring. Evgeny Kuznetsov in his first game back from injury tied things up on the power play. Tom Wilson struck twice in quick succession to give the Caps the lead.
Jay Beagle tapped home his seventh of the season to extend the advantage further. Charles Hudon put in a high deflection with one second left in the second period. Kuznetsov added another power play marker in the third and TJ Oshie deflected one more home. Hudon again. Drouin added a late one.
Caps beat Canadiens 6-4!

Joe B suit of the college hockey night.
The Caps stay on the road for their next one, going to New York to play Hank and the Rangers. If the Caps go at least 5-2 in their last seven games of the season they will win the division regardless of how well the Penguins do.
