It’s time once again for us to relive five goals and another victory on home ice for the team we like most of all. The Caps beat the Carolina Hurricanes because that’s just what they do.
From the Ovi Spot came an Ovi Shot, to the back of the net after a detour through Eddie Lack’s glove. The third line added heat with a Brett Connolly goal, making it 2-0 Washington before the first intermission. After a scoreless second, Lars Eller scored his 10th of the year with a mean short-side slapper and Evgeny Kuznetsov made it 4-0 with a quick one-timer. Marcus Johansson cleaned up a rebound to make it yet another Bailamos game.
At the other end of the ice: nothing. So Braden Holtby has recorded his 7th shutout.
Caps beat Canes 5-0! This is incredible!
