The Washington Capitals hosted the Carolina Hurricanes as the two teams played for the fourth and final time this season. Could the Caps clinch a season-series sweep or did the Canes send the boys home unhappy?
Derek Stepan and Martin Necas slammed home two quick, easy ones to give the Canes an early first period lead. Tom Wilson cut it in half with an early second period goal just as a power play expired. Sebastian Aho and Brett Pesce responded with two more for the Canes.
Necas scored another. Brady Skjei fluttered the sixth in for Carolina.
Hurricanes beat Capitals 6-1.

#JoeBSuitOfTheNight #CapsCanes One of my personal favs this season from @JoeBpXp. A blue suit coat with a gold paisley tie. Please notice @Laughlin18 who complements Joe B's look with a similarly patterned lavender tie. pic.twitter.com/MgJg0Qz3fo

The Caps have a whole bunch of days off until they host the Minnesota Wild on Sunday. Let’s hope they come back with a roster that’s all sorts of healthy.
