The Washington Capitals annihilated the digital Detroit Red Wings 6-1 at virtual Little Caesar’s Arena, Saturday. The Capitals have won every game they’ve played (3-0) since moving to video-game mode. The simulation game aired on NBC Sports Washington instead of the Capitals’ postponed real-life game against the Red Wings due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Carl Hagelin scored twice early in the first period. Nicklas Backstrom, TJ Oshie, and Ilya Kovalchuk added quick goals in the second period to turn it into a rout.
The game also featured some big hits, teleportation, and cameos by humans, Garnet Hathaway and Nic Dowd.
The Detroit Red Wings sent Mike Green to the Edmonton Oilers early Monday morning in exchange for forward Kyle Brodziak and a conditional 2020 fourth-round pick.

Here’s some interesting scuttlebutt for your pre-deadline news cycle. On Thursday’s 31 Thoughts podcast, Elliotte Friedman reviewed each team and what their priorities may be as we approach the trade deadline on Monday, February 24. When he got to the Caps, things got real juicy.
Not only are the Caps interested in trading defender Nick Jensen, they may want ex-Cap Mike Green back from Detroit.
The Washington Capitals didn’t put out their best effort of the season against the Detroit Red Wings, but you don’t really need to do so to get a win in Motown these days. The Caps fought through a couple bad periods, eventually taking down the Wings 5-2 after a couple empty net strikes by their captain.
The Caps out-shot the Wings 34 to 27, but were out-attempted at five-on-five 45 to 38.
Detroit, Michigan was the scene of a battle between a Cup contender vs potential lottery winner. The former in the Washington Capitals were expected to take this win from the outset, and they ended up doing just that.
Robby Fabbri got us underway with a power-play slam dunk. TJ Oshie did exactly the same to kick the second frame off. Alex Ovechkin circled the cage and beat Jonathan Bernier short-side to give the Caps a lead. Tom Wilson’s tenth of the season extended said lead. and Luke Glendening only nine seconds later put a damper on that.
Ovechkin got an empty netter and then another for the hat trick.
Caps beat Red Wings 5-2!
The Caps wrap up the month of November this evening with a sludge game in Detroit. Both teams played yesterday, so this might be an interesting one. And by interesting I really just mean ugly.

The Washington Capitals have snapped their losing streak and they did so by thoroughly running over the Detroit Red Wings. But wait Chris, the Caps only won by a final score of 3-2, how is that “thoroughly running over”. Well imaginary commenter, let’s go into that below.
The Caps ended their three game road swing with a trip to Detroit, hoping to gain at least one win to start 2019 and #CapricornSzn right. Here’s how it all went down.
After a scramble in front of Jimmy Howard, #TopLineTom cashed in on a rebound off a deft Evgeny Kuznetsov pass. Anthony Mantha and his gargantuan reach stole the puck from Jakub Vrana and slid the puck around Braden Holtby to tie it. In a sluggish start to the second, a plodding back check from the Caps led to a Filip Hronek tip in from Dylan Larkin’s cross-ice feed. The Caps didn’t convert on a power play to start the third, but Travis Boyd was able to to pull the Caps even with just over ten minutes left. With the game going full slog, Michal Kempny but the good guys up with a floater from the point. TJ Oshie went to the box for slashing to make things interesting in the dying minutes, but the Wings couldn’t convert.
Caps WIN 3-2!
