The Washington Capitals matched up with the NHL’s best in the Colorado Avalanche on Tuesday night and took the Avs down in a thrilling 3-2 victory. The Caps are now 6-1 in their last seven games and that stretch includes wins over teams like Tampa Bay, Boston, Pittsburgh, and now Colorado.
More where that came from, please.
The Capitals have killed off 10 straight opposing power play opportunities over their last three games. Since March 1, Washington’s 86.9 penalty kill percentage (8 power play goals allowed on 61 opportunities) ranks third in the NHL.
