The Washington Capitals went down one goal to the very bad Ottawa Senators and then never looked back from there. With six unanswered goals, the home team sent their fans home happy with a 6-1 win.
The Caps out-shot the Sens 41 to 27 and out-attempted them at five-on-five 57 to 51.
With the win against the Senators, Ilya Samsonov improves to 12 2-1 this season and has now won seven straight games. Additionally, Samsonov becomes the first goaltender in franchise history to record 12 wins within his first 14 starts.
