RIP points streak. Last night, the Capitals’ 14-game point streak came to an end in the dreariest of ways: a three-nothing loss to the Ottawa Senators. The Caps couldn’t have let this one get away much faster, ceding both a shorthanded goal and a power play goal against before you could say “back-to-back.”
This was only the third time the Caps have been shut out this season, with all three shutout losses ending with a score of three to nil. Besides a nice tribute to Bryan Murray (and a gift from the Caps), this was a game to forget.
