One period wonder: numbers for the morning after
The Washington Capitals put their game with the New York Rangers to bed after the first twenty minutes, netting four goals on fifteen shots and chasing young Alexandar Georgiev from his net. That first period effort was enough to earn the Caps a 4-2 win in regulation and maintain their lead in the NHL’s Metropolitan Division.
The Caps out-shot the Rangers 33 to 30, but were out-attempted by the blueshirts at five-on-five 51 to 36.
