The Washington Capitals dropped a late-night roadie to the Colorado Avalanche on Tuesday, and that’s not even the worst part.
Artturi Lehkonen scored first, a rush goal set up by Nate MacKinnon just before he got steamrolled by Dmitry Orlov. In the second, Andrew Cogliano deflected Kurtis MacDermid’s point shot, but the Caps responded with a tip of their own: Sheary off Fehervary. Restoring Colorado’s two-goal lead in the period was Alex Newhook with a blazing-fast breakaway.
Alex Ovechkin scored off a dazzling one-timer from the Ovi Spot halfway into the third, but they couldn’t close the gap.
