The Washington Capitals opened their first-round series with the New York Islanders and promptly dropped a complete stinker of a game. The Caps took a two-goal lead and then allowed the Isles to score four unanswered to take Game One by a score of 4-2.
The Islanders outshot the Caps 27 to 26 and out-attempted them at five-on-five 37 to 26.
March 5, 2020 vs PHI – “The Washington Capitals have many problems this season and one of them is the Philadelphia Flyers continuing to toss them around like toddlers.”
March 6, 2020 at NYR – “There is something seriously, structurally wrong with your Washington Capitals and seemingly every team in the league other than the Caps know it.”
March 10, 2020 at BUF – “The Caps decided to wait until the third period to actually start playing in this game and that’s really just unacceptable. The Sabres are terrible and dropping any points to them at this time of the season in the Metro Division is ridiculous. Things are still very bad, y’all.”
T.J. Oshie gives the Caps a 2-0 lead with his second power play goal of the game. He's now passed Dino Ciccarelli for the for the sixth most playoff goals in franchise history.
