A banged up Washington Capitals team, missing three of its roster’s biggest pieces, went into Colorado and got the job done even despite those injuries and some shoddy officiating. The Caps took down their former pal, Philipp Grubauer and his new Avalanche teammates 3-2 in overtime.
The Caps out-shot the Avalanche 29 to 26, but were slightly out-attempted by the Avs at five-on-five 45 to 43.
Tom Wilson, who played a career-high 24:24 tonight: "Altitude is definitely a thing. It's not a myth."
