The Washington Capitals traveled north to the great country of Canada to take on the Ottawa Senators. Ovi is still chasing history, Ilya Samsonov was back in net, and the Caps looked to find a good result after a poor outing at home on Wednesday.
TJ Oshie deflected home a layup after a precision slap pass from John Carlson. Evgeny Kuznetsov snuck one into the bean bag pads of the net. Chris Tierney got the Sens on the board in the second, Alex Ovechkin extended the Caps lead once more, and Thomas Chabot pulled the Sens within one again.
Carl Hagelin struck shorthanded. Artem Anisimov responded soon after on a separate power play. Ovechkin empty netter.
Caps beat Senators 5-3!
190 goals is a real low total for an entire team over that length of time. https://t.co/JtWf7smLUr

Super Bowl Sunday is the next time we will see our favorite boys and said time will be the Caps first meeting with the Pens of the season. Yay. Great. Love them.
