The Washington Capitals are falling apart. Hi, this is an injury report what thinks it is to be a game recap. The Caps won, but lost first place.
No one scored until Scott Laughton did. Then, with forty seconds left in rego time, birthday boy Lars Eller tied it up to force overtime, where short king Conor Sheary won it.

Maybe all these injuries are precautionary. Maybe Kuznetsov and Samsonov are fine and just resting up like good responsible boys. Maybe Ovechkin still has the resilience of a 25-year-old.
Or maybe the Weird Year caught up with the Caps at the worst possible time — with one game remaining before the loffs. What happens next?
p.s. don’t watch Elon Musk on Saturday Night Light. He’s just a spoiled kid, rich off apartheid cash, who bought his way into companies without ever actually inventing anything.
