Over the last decade, the Washington Capitals have put on a clinic on how to collapse in the postseason and, Sunday night in Game Two, they tied a record for home overtime futility.
According to ESPN, the Caps become just the sixth team in NHL history to lose in overtime of both Games One and Two of a best-of-seven series at home. That is sad.

Jay Beagle scored tonight. That was fun. The Capitals always win when Jay Beagle scores.
7-0 this season, and I have it at 41-1-5 lifetime. https://t.co/dpCih9rik9
