Ohhhhh baby did we want this win and the Washington Capitals not only delivered, but have also clinched the NHL’s Metropolitan Division. The two points were awarded to the Capitals who still have three more regular season games to go, including one tomorrow at 8PM. Let’s crank this out. No days off.
Were you sweatin’ about that TJ Oshie injury? Well he reassured us that his lower-body injury was no biggie and scored the first goal of the game to put the Capitals up 1-0. In sad news, Jay Beagle took an upper-body injury and was promptly directed to the locker room. Beagle did not return for the remainder of the game.
The lead was doubled during the second period when Dmitry Orlov scored his 10th goal of the season, bringing the Capitals up 2-0 at the start of the third period. 13 seconds into the third and Tom Wilson brings the score up 3-0 with a perfect tip in. *kisses fingertips like an Italian chef* Oh, Hornqvist scored at some point. Who cares.
Caps beat Pens 3-1.

Tonight will be Grubauer’s 100th game played. And this coincidence is just silly:
He will now have been in net for Ovechkin’s 1,000th game, 400th goal, 484th goal (to be top-scoring Russian), 500th goal and 600th goal.
