The Washington Capitals have CAPPED (sorry) off the year with a loss to the Nashville Predators. This ended the Predators’ five-game losing streak and the Capitals have now lost two games in their last eleven. Not too shabby!
After an exciting first period, the Capitals got on the board twice with goals from Michal Kempny and Jakub Vrana. A quick response from Nashville’s Rocco Grimaldi would keep the Capitals in the lead headed into the second period.
Not quite sure what got into the Predators team during the second period, but after a Chandler Stephenson goal (*cough* and a Braden Holtby assist), they responded with three additional goals.
The third period was quiet for the first half until Ryan Ellis and Viktor Arvidsson put the final nails in the coffin.
Caps lose 6-3!
