An all too familiar postseason fate was bestowed upon the Washington Capitals by the Columbus Blue Jackets in Game One of the first round of the Stanley Cup loffs. In the Blue Jackets 4-3 overtime win, the Caps were plagued by stupid penalties, inability to make simple plays in dire times, and turtling that would make Donatello proud.
The Capitals out-shot the Blue Jackets 30 to 27, but were out-attempted at five-on-five 51 to 46.
