Y’all. I don’t know exactly what just happened here, but it seems that the Caps got turbo-trounced by the Columbus Blue Jackets. To kick off their longest and most important road trip of the season, the Caps got their butts kicked. In hindsight, I imagine, Washington’s training staff will regret having replaced the team’s sports drinks with whatever horse-tranquilizers-and-LaCroix mix they were obviously chugging on Tuesday night.
After a (mercifully) scoreless first period, Anthony Duclair scored for Columbus, exploiting a bad line change that created a three-on-one rush. In the third, Nick Foligno got a goal (again, on the rush) to settle the matter. Artemi Panarin added an empty netter.
Caps loose. I know that’s a typo but I’m keeping it. For stylistic reasons.
I feel like a soɯɐlᴉɐq is justified here.
My god you’re not joking @peterhassett what a caning.
Also Orlov has literally half of the ten shots so far. pic.twitter.com/5HVyxH07MN

I’m at the game. Never so happy to have chosen my Holtby jersey.

From here the Caps head to San Jose for a (late) Thursday night date with the San Jose Sharks, who are very very good. One thing the Caps could try against them would be to play better hockey.
