Merry Clinchmas, fam. The Washington Capitals faced off against a tricky Carolina Hurricanes team and snagged the win to clinch a playoff spot.
The scoring began in the first period with a goal from Nino Niederreiter. Brett Connolly answered with a gorgeous goal, continuing to make it very clear that he’s going to get pa-a-aid in his next contract.
Second period scoring kicked off with a slick goal from Warren Foegele to bring the Canes up 2-1. The first penalty of the game happened and the Capitals got a chance on the power play. It was a mess, you don’t need to worry about it.
A quick goal from Jakub Vrana tied the game up 2-2. Nic Dowd saved the day and scored his first goal in 13 games. We called it.
Caps beat Canes 3-2. PLAYOFFS.

Being honest, this is looking like it could be a possibility for a series playoffs and it would be extremely entertaining. We’ll see you on Saturday for another tricky match-up. The Capitals will be travelling down to pay another visit to the Tampa Bay Lightning. Clinch it up.
