The recently uneven Washington Capitals traveled to Minnesota to take on a Wild team that has benefited from a new coach bounce with a 5-2 record under new head boss Dean Evason. Could the Caps tame the Wild and get back on track?
Ryan Donato was sprung on a breakaway and banked the puck in off Braden Holtby to open scoring. Then the Caps would pounce big time. Alex Ovechkin, Richard Panik, and Ovi again would all strike within a 3:38 span in the first. Kevin Fiala responded quickly with a power play one time bomb.
Tom Wilson kicked off the third period by finishing a perfect Ovechkin feed. Zach Parise jammed one home on the power play.
Caps beat Wild 4-3!

Next for the Caps is the surging Philadelphia Flyers on Wednesday night in a game that believe it or not will heavily factor in regards to the eventual winner of the Metro Division.
