After a quick jaunt down south, the Washington Capitals met up with their former Southeast Division and current Metropolitan Division pals, the Carolina Hurricanes. The two teams had yet to match up with one another this season until Friday night so this was their first look at former teammate and now Hurricanes captain, Justin Williams.
Jordan Martinook didn’t wait long to get the Canes on the board very early in this one, but Alex Ovechkin responded with a tally of his own only minutes later. Noted Caps killer Sebastian Aho added a shorthanded goal to give the Canes a 2-1 lead after twenty minutes.
Aho got his second on a man advantage in the second, Teuvo Teravainen did the same moments later, but goals from Tom Wilson, Ovechkin, and Travis Boyd within six minutes tied this bad boy up.
Alex Ovechkin scored his third of the night. Again. LOL. Justin Williams tied things up on a power play after a brutal turnover from Braden Holtby.
Caps beat Hurricanes 6-5!.

The Caps are back home tomorrow night to see the young, upstart Buffalo Sabres. Pheonix Copley will surely be your netminder and it will be his job to stop Jeff Skinner, Jack Eichel, and their buddies.
