The Capitals were in Sin City on Saturday night to take on the Golden Knights in an arena that sparks fond memories for all Caps fans. No Stanley Cup on the line this time but still an important two standings points.
Alec Martinez got Vegas on the board very early with his first goal of the season. Nicolas Roy converted on a two-on-one chance soon after to double the home team’s lead. Michael Amadio, Byron Froese, and Paul Cotter all added to that in the second.
TJ Oshie ruined Logan Thompson’s shutout bid. Cotter with another. Marcus Johansson redirect.
Golden Knights beat Capitals 6-2.

The Caps will stay out west for one more against the reigning Stanley Cup champion Colorado Avalanche. Let us all hope that Alex Ovechkin is back in the lineup for that one.
