Capitals doomed by mistakes, untimely penalties, and bad stretches of play in Nashville: numbers for the morning after
A Tuesday night in Nashville sounds like a fun time if you’re just about anyone but the Washington Capitals. The Caps matched up with a hot Predators team that had won four games in a row, and that streak did not end there. The Preds took the Caps to the cleaners in a 6-3 Nashville win.
The Predators out-shot the Capitals 31 to 29, but the Caps won the shot attempts battle five-on-five 55 to 43.
