The Washington Capitals made the trip up to Minnesota to take on another of the NHL’s Central Division teams in the Wild. The Caps were hoping to get a better result than they did against the Blues at home on Friday.
Matt Boldy scored with less than a minute gone to open the scoring. Boldy struck again soon after to double Minnesota’s lead. Alex Ovechkin from his office with a blast past forever nemesis Marc-Andre Fleury cut the lead in half. Ryan Reaves got the two-goal advantage back with a deflection.
Brandon Duhaime made it four. Ovi potted another. Boldy completed his hat trick. Dylan Strome added one more.
Wild beat Caps 5-3.
