The first game home from a long road trip can turn into a trap game for a lot of teams around the league, but the Washington Capitals were available to avoid that fate Wednesday Night. The Caps played Mystical Space Typhoon and destroyed the Chicago Blackhawks trap card, taking the Windy City squad down 4-2.
The Blackhawks out-shot the Caps 39 to 27 and out-attempted them at five-on-five 61 to 37.
