No let down game here!
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.
