The Washington Capitals stomped a mudhole in the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday night. It’s just that simple.
Goals came fast and furious: Connolly on the PP, Boyd with some fourth-line fireworks, Ovi with a goofy redirect then a good goal, Oshie chased Bernier. In the third period Dylan Larkin cracked the shutout, but Ovi responded by completing the hat trick with a powerful slapshot. Adbelkader’s forecheck set up Nyquist for a sneaky short-side goal, but that was that.
Caps win 6-2!
Six goals? Esta noche!
Alex Ovechkin now has 126 career multi-goal games, passing Dino Ciccarelli for 11th-most in NHL history. He sits 1 multi-goal game shy of tying Mike Bossy and Jaromir Jagr for 9th-most all-time.

Today marks the ninth anniversary of Russian Machine Never Breaks.
Friends, it’s been so so so much work. Thank you for being here and having fun with us. Thanks to our beloved contributors and patrons and all the loved ones who tolerate a thing that is not a hobby or a side hustle, but rather a calling — one that we take seriously and into which we have invested unspeakable sums of time and labor. It’s been worth it. We promise not to get less weird in the next nine.
See y’all on Friday as the Caps head down to North Carolina for a date with the Canes.
