A sleepy snow day in the DC area definitely extended into Capital One Arena where the Capitals hosted the St. Louis Blues. Unfortunately, it looks like the Capitals also took the day off because it looked like they didn’t show up. At least Capitals fans in the arena got a cool pair of free gloves?
A lazy start to the game would be disrupted about eight minutes in the first period by Alex Ovechkin. That was the best part of the first period because it went back to sleep mode. Second period rolled around and the Capitals continued to looked sluggish and out of sync. The Blues took advantage and steal the lead with two goals by the 5:11 mark of the second period. The Blues tacked on one additional goal to bring the Blues up 3-1 heading into the third. The third period happened and the Blues scored again. That’s all you gotta know.
Caps lose 4-1
Interesting stat from @VogsCaps.

See you tomorrow, folks. It’ll be a tough one against the Nashville Predators, but we stick by the boys. Things have been harder. God gives his toughest battles to his strongest soldiers.
