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!
