The Washington Capitals were in Los Angeles at Staples Center tonight to match up with the Kings in what needed to be a bounce back performance for a Caps team that got steamrolled a night before in Anaheim. Were they able to come up with the much needed two points?
Alex Ovechkin got things started in the right direction, firing home from his office on the power play and Brett Connolly drifted through the slot with a tip-in to give the Caps a 2-0 lead after twenty minutes. Ovi did that thing again on the power play to extend the lead further.
Alex Iafallo got one back for the Kings. Ilya Kovalchuk added another.
Caps beat Kings 3-2!

Next up for the Caps is a return to the East, but not a return home. They will be flying into Toronto to take on the high flying Maple Leafs on Thursday night. Go Caps go.
