The Washington Capitals lastly performed their first sport of the season towards the New York Rangers with a really impactful regulation victory.

Marcus Johansson opened the scoring with an influence play purpose to clear up the free puck within the paint. Within the second, Eric Gustafsson was late with a speeding assault and Lars Eller added a ability purpose from a slot earlier than the interval expired.

Conor Shelley obtained Shorty – no kidding – and that was it.

Caps win! Full Darcy Kemper!

  • I had this sport circled on my calendar for over a month. It is unusual that the Caps have gone so lengthy with out dealing with their division rivals, and given New York’s superiority within the standings, these head-to-head matches can be vital. Chance elevated by 5 factors and New York’s likewise decreased.
  • I am curious in regards to the cap Play without John CarlsonThey have been cornered in the course of a 5-5 within the first interval, so I jumped to conclusions rapidly and recklessly. The Caps’ current strong play is over! The recession is coming! I do not know if that is true, however I needed to specific my panic right here. As a result of that is what this house is for.
  • I do not imply to blow the man up, however somebody on Twitter stated, “Hopefully somebody will channel their internal Reavo tonight to beat the crap out of Wilson.” Everybody feels smug about that tweet.
  • did Matt Irwin Do you need to go by? You possibly can see some elements of the thru-foot, however I really feel that the posture of the particular person doing the thru-foot is totally absent. I am positive not.
  • In “one of many worst riffed video games of the season,” a number of gentle calls had the Caps within the field.
  • Anyway, Irwin partnered with Alexander Alekseev, and so they have been devastated. By my final verify, the Caps have been outscored 15-4 on the shift. John Carlson, hurry again?
  • Eric Gustafson‘s purpose within the second interval is his fifth of the season. I used to be going to say he is on a career-best trajectory, however I noticed him rating 17 targets in 2019. I am wanting ahead to partnering with Dyke to see if he can maintain this up.
  • Okay, Igor Shesterkin. Igor Shestakin, I perceive. i’ll admit it. That is good financial savings.
  • lars error Scored in McNugget Minutes. I often strive to not discuss McNugget Minutes as a result of I do not receives a commission to speak about them. I all the time really feel like I am unhealthy at parroting sponsorships and partnerships. I am a thief, so I will insist on paying for Nagie tomorrow.
  • Nick Jensen Arrested for a “closed hand within the puck” penalty. It was the tenth time he has been penalized this season and represents his 0.2% of all penalties.
  • connor sherry We have now two short-handed targets this season. Not earlier than this season. He’s regular top for me.

The Capitals efficiently defeated the Rangers. It is good by itself, and even higher when you think about the standings. However I do not suppose Caps managed the sport wherever however on the scoreboard, so I am slightly nervous in regards to the subsequent matchup between these two of him. Oddly sufficient, it will not be till February. 9 of the staff’s final 17 video games have been towards his Metro staff, and 5 of them towards the New York staff, so it’ll be an enormous deal.

Two Canadian groups are subsequent in DC. First in Ottawa on Thursday after which in Montreal this weekend. There are many probabilities to proceed this 9-0-1 run of his.
