Two huge upsets are now nearly complete in the east and two series continue to tighten in the west. Lets check out the chaos that was Sunday night.
The Washington Capitals sent their fans home happy with another playoff win at Capital One Arena over the Carolina Hurricanes. It took overtime and a Brooks Orpik blast to get it done as the Caps now head to Raleigh up 2-0 in the series.
The Caps out-shot the Canes 33 to 28.
The Washington Capitals opened their 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs with a 4-2 win over a pesky Carolina Hurricanes team. The Caps were able to get their man advantage unit on track and staved off a third period Canes rally to get the victory.
The Canes out-shot the Caps 29 to 18.
The Washington Capitals dropped a 3-0 decision to the New York Islanders on the final day of the NHL regular season. The game was meaningless to the Capitals and we now know that the boys will be taking on the Carolina Hurricanes in the first round of the playoffs.
The Caps out-shot the Isles 29 to 24.
Saturday night, the Washington Capitals and New York Islanders matched up in a game that mattered none to the good guys and only little to the bad guys. That’s the great analysis you can expect from CFTC when it’s game number 82.
Nada in the first just like Adam Cole got nada last night on Takeover. Val Filppula opened scoring on a breakaway and added another in the third. Matt Martin empty netter.
Islanders beat Caps 3-0.
The Washington Capitals took down the Montreal Canadiens 2-1 in the penultimate game of the regular season. That victory sealed the team’s fourth straight win of the NHL’s Metropolitan Division.
The Habs out-shot the Caps 34 to 31.
