The Caps were in Motown to play Mike Green and the Detroit Red Wings in the Wings newly opened Pizza Palace, Pie Center, Dough Joe, etc. The team came away with a 4-3 overtime win after Alex Ovechkin slammed home the GWG on the power play in the extra frame.
The Caps out-attempted the Wings 48 to 39 at five-on-five and overall outshot them 41 to 37. All in all this was a very nice effort from the team out of DC for the first two periods, but they took their foot off the gas in the third. This allowed the Wings to tie the game and eventually take a lead themselves on the back of two Tomas Tatar goals.
