Friday night was Barry Trotz’ first visit to Capital One Arena for a gameday since his then Capitals team won Game Four of the Stanley Cup Finals against the Vegas Golden Knights. Now, Barry took his new squad, the New York Islanders, into DC and got a big ole result.
In spectacular fashion, we got no goals in the first period. In ludicrous fashion, we got no goals in the second period. Josh Bailey opened scoring in the third and serial embellisher Cal Clutterbuck added another.
Islanders beat Caps 2-0.
We love a good celly. pic.twitter.com/zCjYlkM0Wz

Next up, the Caps have a nice Sunday afternoon matinee matchup with the Chicago Blackhawks in the Windy City. I bet the weather is going to be just fantastic up there!
