The Washington Capitals bounced back after a couple very poor losses to Metro Division teams with a win against yet another common division foe. The Caps and Ilya Samsonov shutout the Carolina Hurricanes 2-0 on home ice. I’ll take some more of that.
The Caps out-shot the Canes 30 to 23 and out-attempted them at five-on-five 44 to 29.
Capitals captain @ovi8 needed 142 games to get from goal 600 to goal 685, matching Wayne Gretzky for the fewest contests to make that leap.
