The Washington Capitals have lost six straight at home and to snap that streak they’d need to take a piece out of the East-leading Carolina Hurricanes. A tough task for any team let alone a struggling one.
Evgeny Kuznetsov slung a wrist shot past a screened Freddy Andersen to give the Caps a first-period lead. Martin Fehervary finished off a fantastic shift from the “fourth” line to double the lead. Alex Ovechkin added a one-time blast from his office to the proceedings.
Dmitry Orlov with the cherry on top. Vitek Vanecek shutout.
Capitals beat Hurricanes 4-0!
