The Washington Capitals came into Monday night’s action on a six game winning streak, looking to make it seven against the mediocre Arizona Coyotes. A few unlucky bounces here and a few huge saves from Antti Raanta there, and the Caps fell 4-3 to the Coyotes in a game decided by the shootout.
The Yotes out-shot the Caps 35 to 34, but were out-attempted at five-on-five 52 to 43.
This is the first time this has occured in the NHL since the Philadelphia Flyers in the 2005-06 season (12 straight, Oct. 27 through Nov. 19) and the second time since 1993-94.
