The furious, points-laden month of December continues for the Washington Capitals, who stubbornly refuse to lose. Soundly outplaying the Ottawa Senators on a dreary Monday night, the Caps got a weirdly rare home win in rego.
The first period had a bunch of penalties but no pucks in the net. Jay Beagle summoned the weird superstar part of his skill set to get the Caps on the board first. Before two minutes had passed, Erik Condra nullified the Caps’ lead by ripping off Mike Green and beating Holtby. Papa Nick Backstrom made a great read on the power play to beat Craig Anderson and give the Caps the lead going into the second intermission. Holtby kept the Caps in it in the third.
Caps beat Sens 2-1!
