The Washington Capitals, who enjoyed five days of rest before Sunday’s game, got trounced by the Minnesota Wild, who played last night. This game was awful from the first minute.
Speaking of: The Wild scored two goals in the first 100 seconds of the game. The second period was slower, but Joel Eriksson Ek scored his second of the game off a loose puck. Marcus Foligno scored on the first shift of the third period.
Garnet Hathaway tipped in an Alex Ovechkin shot to end the shutout, but it was over. Nicolas Deslauriers got the empty-netter.

I don’t want to burn the tape. I want to rub the tape in the team’s face until they learn shame. That’s how petty I am right now. I’m doing the bad dog metaphor.
Anyway. this game sucked. It’s been so long (i.e. one week) since this team has offered a non-yeesh performance. They’ll have two days off, and then they better bring it against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Wednesday.
