The Caps had a chance on Monday night to build off a genuinely good victory over the Minnesota Wild and maybe soothe some fan worries. They didn’t do that. In a 4-1 loss to the Calgary Flames, they just doubled down on suck.
The Flames out-shot the Caps 39 to 30 and at five-on-five out-attempted them 47 to 37. That’s real bad.
